Vocabulary From Classical Roots



Strategic Vocabulary Instruction Through Greek And Latin Roots!

Over 60% of the English language comprises words derived from Greek and Latin roots. Vocabulary from Classical Roots is ideal for students mastering growing content-area vocabulary in social studies, science, and mathematics - predominantly multisyllabic Greek and Latin-based words. 

Vocabulary from Classical Roots helps students unlock the meanings of thousands or words. As students transition from learning to read, to reading to learn, they will develop a useful, transferable technique for making sense of unfamiliar words.
