The Latin-Greek Connection: Building Vocabulary through Morphological Study
Rasinski, Timothy V.; Padak, Nancy; Newton, Joanna; Newton, Evangeline
Reading Teacher, v65 n2 p133-141 Oct 2011
In this article, the authors make a case for teaching vocabulary in the elementary grades through a focus on the morphological structure of words, in particular English words that are derived through Latin and Greek roots and affixes. The authors present a set of engaging instructional ideas for the use of Latin and Greek derivations to teach vocabulary and provide classroom-based examples of how a morphological-based vocabulary program can be implemented and its impact on students and teachers.
