    Audience

    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • ELA and subject-matter teachers (e.g., social studies, science, workforce prep, etc.)
  • Appropriate for Corrections teachers
  • Aimed at teachers and tutors of GLE 9-12; teachers of intermediate-level readers are welcome to attend as well
Description

Latin and Greek roots, prefixes, and suffixes form the foundation of much of the English language. It makes sense, then, that learning the meanings of specific word parts can open the door to understanding the meanings of new words encountered in reading and study. Explore engaging and effective ways to teach morphological analysis to ASE learners.
