2018 Summer Introduction to Etymology Camp
- Description: This camp is designed for middle school students to learn root words and their meanings. The study of etymology is integral to an understanding of the English language. Recognizing root words enhances a student’s ability to learn and understand new vocabulary and decipher difficult words on standardized tests such as the SAT. Etymology equips students with necessary tools to aid in the acquisition of an advanced vocabulary. This course will mobilize various teaching methods to help your child learn and retain new skills through lectures, worksheets, and activities!
