Latin and Greek Words Parts: free 4-session workshop
Sharon Green, coordinator of instructional services in the Office of Academic Support, is offering a free four-session workshop on Latin & Greek Words Parts. As noted on the attached flyer, to accommodate more students it will be offered at two different times: Mondays from 2:30 – 3:25 pm and Tuesdays from 3:40 – 4:40 pm, starting Jan. 30 & Jan. 31 respectively. This workshop is designed to help students increase their understanding of English words by gaining word-attack skills. In each session, students will learn 25 Latin and Greek prefixes, suffixes, and roots, as well as examples of English words containing these word parts. Because few students today take Latin or Greek, they may lack the ability to analyze words, which may cause them to miss meaning when they read.
This four-session workshop is open to all students but may be especially beneficial for students…
– with a limited vocabulary
– whose first language is not English
– who are taking heavy reading courses (such as history, philosophy, and psychology)
– who may attend graduate school
– who are interested in the origin of English words
If appropriate, please mention this free four-session workshop to students you think could benefit.
