A sampling of skills developed with this multisensory lesson:
Long term memory
Students will develop a stronger vocabulary using a multisensory approach to word meaning.
The root "port" is a common Greek root. This lesson focuses on a multitude of skills that many students have not internalized, even though students are higher grade levels.
Students in high school level classes have used this lesson and have developed a automaticity of root meaning, and words that include this root. This leads to word recognition, faster reading fluency, and increased comprehension.
Students in middle school, and gifted students will also benefit using this lesson. However, all students require review and repetition of this root. It is important students have time to process this new skill. Otherwise, students may be tempted to memorize or forget, rather than comprehend and retain.
