Strategic vocabulary instruction through Greek and Latin roots

Vocabulary from Classical Roots® is ideal for students mastering a growing content-area vocabulary in social studies, science, literature, and mathematics – predominantly multisyllabic Greek- and Latin-based words. Strategic instruction helps students learn to unlock the meanings of thousands of words.
