Root Awakenings: Vocabulary Development Using Classical Word Roots

Craig Sirles, DePaul University
This book is an ideal basic text for courses devoted primarily to vocabulary enrichment and word history. It may also be used in First-year composition and rhetoric classes as well as in developmental college reading-and-writing skills courses. Because the pacing of the material and test difficulty can be readily adjusted to different learning levels, Root Awakenings is also highly suitable for accelerated college-preparatory classes at the secondary school level.
Included is stystematic coverage of nearly 400 classical word elements, along with creative and stimulating exercises and questions.
Instructors manual available.
