Park's 7th grade vocabulary study is centered around Vocabulary From Latin & Greek Roots: A Study Of Word Families (Prestwick House). We will study a variety of prefixes, roots, & suffixes to increase our vocabulary, as well as improve our ability to determine the meaning of unfamiliar words. Each lesson will be broken down into smaller sections, focusing on stem/word meaning, application, & connections.
Assessments will focus on knowledge of both the stems (roots, prefixes, suffixes) and the keywords. The portion of the assessment focusing on roots will be cumulative throughout the year, however, students you only be responsible for keywords for a two unit cycle.
For optimum success, review words daily. You will be able to retake quizzes and tests as long as the retake is completed before the next assessment. In order to retake an assessment, you will need to show evidence of further study (i.e. making flashcards, creating a picture chart, completing a practice quiz with a parent). You will need to arrange a time with me to retake the quiz or test (before/after school or at lunch).
Be sure to check out the vocabulary supports offered through this website - word lists, flash cards, online quizzes/games for review, & more.
