NG – LA/Morphology – Morris – Period 2

· August 21, 2020

Morphology is the study of morphemes (roots, suffixes, and prefixes) that create meaningful words. Students in this course are expected to read, analyze, and write about literature using morphology as a way to better understand the text. Students are also expected to learn and apply a myriad of Greek and Latin roots as well as various common suffixes and prefixes. The study of language in use – grammar, mechanics, sentence structure, and writing will be incorporated as well. There will be regular assessments to ensure progress and/or needs.

Course Objectives: The student will demonstrate the ability to:

  • Read, analyze, and write responses to short pieces of literature
  • Correctly apply knowledge of morphemes in an everyday context
  • Build rich sentences that are vivid
