WHY GREEK AND LATIN ROOTS?
Almost 70% of the English language is derived from Latin and Greek languages. When we teach students these “building blocks,” they can recognize and decode unfamiliar words that are related to a known root. It is also increasingly important to explicitly teach students the meanings of Greek and Latin roots as they encounter the very technical vocabulary found in science and other content areas.
WHY SKETCH NOTES
Sketch notes present your students with a meaningful and engaging activity that they will love. Doodle notetaking activates verbal and visual modalities to capture concepts. The whole brain is absorbed in hearing, synthesizing, and retaining ideas. This high level of engagement not only helps with the retention of the content, but it also leaves little room for distraction.
