The concept behind this product is that every year it seems as if my students score lowest in the area of determining the meaning of unfamiliar words (context clues and word origins).
In order to combat against this I chose the topic 200 reoccurring roots and prefixes used them create "RPS Lists" (Root, Prefix, Suffix)
I then took those words and plugged them into high interest non fiction articles and added context clues into those articles.
Finally, I turned those words into multiple choice quizzes.
Every Monday my students get a new "RPS List" of 6 words and definitions.
Every Wednesday our students read an article with those words and use context clues to match the words to the definitions (as well as answer 5 comprehension/analytical questions based on the article)
Every Friday my students take an "RPS Quiz" on the word list of the week.
I used a different version of this system last year, it worked GREAT and scores really went up in word origin and context. I took what worked last year revamped it and added more to this product. It was quite the undertaking and after 3 months of working almost exclusively on this product it is finally done!
In this listing there are 26 sets of RPS Lists, Articles, Quizzes, and a definition key (in both PDF and Word files)
****RPS Week 22 is available as a sample!, but a note on it is that the lists are done in landscape so the formatting of those tables are off in the sample, but are complete in the actual product***
