Vocabulary instruction 2: Roots & Affixes

Vocabulary instruction 2: Roots & Affixes

In the second word work video, students will break down vocabulary terms into roots and affixes.  In this lesson, students will learn how to use a dictionary to find the origin of the word and identify the root.  As students identify and define affixes, they will expand their knowledge to recognize a broader base of words.  Finally, students will return to the text and determine how the author is using each vocabulary word in the article.
