This resource includes two reading passages about the words associated with education - it also includes references to the history of public education, and the origin of the English language and its spread. as well as the origins of some of the words associated with the celebration. It would be a great resource for Back to School but of course, can be used any time during the school year.
Each text has a work page including vocabulary and comprehension question activities. The passages have a common topic and can be read at different times but should be read in order.
A list of 34 words associated with education is also included to help students choose a word to research for the “word origin challenge” at the bottom of the work page that accompanies the second text. This page is not numbered and is at the very end of this file.
A full answer key is provided for objective work.
