DL Expands Vocab Development System


Curriculum developer Dynamic Literacy has released Elements Level 2, an expansion of the company's WordBuild Vocabulary Development System.

The WordBuild Vocabulary Development System is a morphics-based, spiraling vocabulary curriculum for students in grades 2 through 12. The Elements series, a part of this system, is targeted toward students moving beyond phonics and into textual knowledge acquisition, focusing on helping students to determine meaning from words based on the building blocks (Latin and Greek morphemes) that make up those words.

Elements Level 2 comprises a student activity book with a year's worth of exercises and software that allows educators to create customizable quizzes for their students. Printable exercises are also available through an online component. These exercises are designed to teach students how to break down words into prefixes, roots, and suffixes and to find meaning based on frequently used Latin and Greek roots.
