Product Description
Since many technical words have Latin or Greek origins, I find that teaching my students the roots that make up a word is tremendously helpful when it comes to them remembering words and breaking down future terms. For example, they learn that pathogen literally means "disease starter" and neurology literally means "study of nerves." When they later encounter the word neuropathy, the automatically deduce that it means "nerve disease." These roots are a terrific resource to use to make a flyswatter word wall (explained in my blog post at: https://proteanpedagogy.wordpress.com/2014/06/16/flyswatter-smack-that-vocab/)
