This is a personalized unit designed to be used on computers. It brings the students through a variety of activities to help them understand prefixes, suffixes, and root words. It culminates with a summative assessment that involves the students making a root word presentation. Many of the words have Greek and mythological origins, which they find appealing. Included, in the recommended order of completion, is:
- Checklist: with areas to put date completed, scores, and teacher signoff. Has a link to a preassessment on Quizizz.
