Included here are 5-10 days of structured lessons to teach the Greek/Latin prefixes HYPO- and HYPER-. The time you spend depends on what your students already know. This lesson was designed to engage students by incorporating images, examples and opportunities for students to apply what they are learning. Formative and Summative assessment tools are also included. Altogether this lesson includes:
-Two pre assessment activities that introduce this Greek/Latin word part.
-A slide show (PPT and Keynote) that will guide students through the discovery, understanding, and application of words with the HYPO- and HYPER- prefixes.
-Vocabulary notecards for students to take notes and apply what they are learning.
-A pre-/post- test you can use to assess students' understanding and learning.
-Ready-to-use word wall words.
