Comprehensive Study Group
Welcome to CSG!
I am excited to have your student come to CSG. In Comprehensive Study Group I will try to share skills and strategies to help students achieve to their hightest potential. I will do this through self reflection and units that broaden students learning and give them skills to succeed.
We will begin our class with a study of Latin stems. In this unit we will learn a bit about the culture, history, and geography of Ancient Rome. We will focus on Latin as the building blocks for much of our language. We will discuss Roman architecture as a metaphor for language-stems build language as blocks and arches build great buildings. The students were very engaged today as we discussed ancient vs. modern times and started learning about Roman architecture. I look forward to this unit.
Powerful Key to Vocabulary Building
Michael Clay Thompson, an educator of the gifted and author says, “Learning the 100 most common Latin and Greek stems in the English language gives you access to at least 5,000 words. This is the fast-track, the power-path, to a strong vocabulary…infinitely more powerful than learning one word at a time.”
