Greek and Latin Roots: Lesson 1
We will study one unit of Greek and Latin Roots each week. On Fridays, you will have a quiz on the roots and ten related words. You will need to
define the roots
match the words with their definitions.
Do Now:
The beginning is the most important part of the work.” – Plato
Article of the Week
In addition to our weekly practice with ACHIEVE 3000, we will do a weekly homework assignment called Article of the Week (AOW). For the first two weeks, this assignment will not be homework. I will teach you how to complete it and we will work on it together as a class.

To begin, let's read the directions at the top of the article together and talk about our approach.
Two Strategies for your AOW:
Pre-read the questions.
This will allow you to annotate with purpose; it's like shopping with a list- it makes you more efficient and effective.
Always annotate.
Annotating is worth one out of 15 points on each AOW. Use the strategy outlined at the top of the AOW to make your annotations specific and useful.
1. Label the second box with today's date: 9/8/15
3. Copy the quote and the author. Be accurate.
4. Write a response to the quote: agree, disagree, evaluate, connect, summarize, ask a question
This is Plato. He was a philosopher and mathematician in Ancient Greece-- around the 400s -300s BC. Socrates was his teacher, and Aristotle was his student. He is credited with the foundation of most philosophy we know and understand in the Western world.
Greek and Latin Roots: Lesson 1
Our study of roots will begin with PREFIXES. Prefixes can be attached to other roots to change their meaning. Think of "un" or "pro". Our first prefixes are:

under across
Let's read the related words. When your name is called, read either the word, part of speech and definition or the example sentence. Pay attention! Everyone should know where we are!

Set Up Binders
In front of all the dividers, keep: A copy of the course outline and discipline plan, the current week's "do now," the current week's Article of the Week, and the current week's ROOTS.
The five sections should be:
1. Reading
2. Writing
3. Vocabulary
4. Journals
5. Notes
1. Analyze a quote on new beginnings.
2. Read a non-fiction text closely using annotation.
3. Make connections between Greek and Latin roots and related words.
4. Set up organized binders.
5. Practice supporting claims with evidence as a way of analyzing literature.

Textbook Scavenger Hunt
Everyone worked so well together, it was difficult to choose a "most focused" or "best collaboration" pair, so I selected the first three pairs to turn in their work, mostly correct.
No one had all the answers completely correct, but these six people were the closest to totally correct in the least amount of time.
Now, in the journal section of your binder, I will ask you to write silently for 10 minutes. Write an original story that is both about
and about
. Consider this a "free write;" get your ideas down and we can modify it later to make it perfect.

I will not require you to share, but you will have the option to do so.

If you get stuck, keep writing. Write about how stuck you feel. Write about how annoyed you are that I am asking you to keep writing. Whatever you need to write about--
keep writing
