This is the eighth chapter of my linguistics curriculum: Writing Systems and Alphabets. Check out Chapters 1-10 in my store!
The study of linguistics is not out of reach for young people, as many would believe. The L-SINC (Linguistic Study in the Classroom) Curriculum is designed to introduce this field to students in grades 5-8. Studying language is proven to improve linguistic awareness, cultural tolerance, and even language-based test scores. This unit will definitely get your students thinking!
The lessons are designed for teachers who may or may not have any linguistics background to deliver, but I do recommend the teacher's guide to accompany each chapter.
With one license, the purchaser can make copies of each page for all students in up to 6 class periods. Additional licenses should be purchased for additional teachers or class periods.
