Vocabulary Instruction Goes "Old School"
Kail, Suzanne R.
English Journal, v97 n4 p62-67 Mar 2008
High school teacher Suzanne R. Kail and her students uncover the relevance of learning Latin and Greek roots to enhance vocabulary and spelling. Kail reflects on her experience of combining what might be seen as an old-school practice of memorization with promoting higher level thinking skills and anticipates what she will revise for the next school year. (Contains 1 figure.)
