THE STUDY OF ETYMOLOGY INCREASES STUDENT TEST SCORES

 

A WORD TO EDUCATORS

 

The Imagical Power of Etymology is designed to increase students vocabulary and thus reading comprehension. The approach is simple and fun, and not at all like learning Latin, which is usually introduced in higher grades with a rather dry approach. The roots listed in this workbook are of Latin or Greek origin. It is not necessary to teach or have students memorize where the roots came from. What is important is for students to remember the meaning of the roots, and thus the precise meaning of words.

This workbook serves as an introduction to the field of Etymology. It provides educators a tool and springboard, by which many other word derivations can be found by using the glossary of roots, prefixes, and suffixes found at the end of the book. Also included is a dictionary of dinosaur roots, which is not exclusive to the physical characteristics of dinosaurs, as these characteristics are found everywhere in nature, and can be related to any organism.
