Better Vocabulary Through Derivatives
Students use Latin roots to figure out the meaning of English works, and create a Word Tree poster. This continuing series of lessons attempts to help students increase both their Latin and English vocabularies by carrying over their knowledge of one language to the other. By using already familiar English words with Latin roots, students can better remember the meanings of Latin words.
Immigration: Another Perspective
Students complete three research projects on the geography of immigration, the history of immigration, and current immigration issues. They demonstrate through art and writing that they appreciate the experience of immigration and acculturation.
