Expand students' vocabularies by teaching them to recognize word "cells" as the major building blocks of English words. Help students develop and maintain positive attitudes toward the diversity, utility, and wonder of language.
As students begin changing their views of how English is built, they will shift from a letter-by-letter or sound-by-sound process to one that focuses on larger units of language—roots, prefixes, and suffixes. Words come alive through vignettes and explanations that demonstrate topic vocabulary used in context. Students see and hear vocabulary in authentic settings, instead of simply "memorizing" a list of words.
Wordscape explores the multicultural contributions to English vocabulary from Latin, Greek, French, German, Hispanic, West African, and Native American sources.
