Reflection: Rigor Languages of the Old World: Introducing Latin Suffixes - Section 5: Review


I think the CCSS in ELA really demonstrate their rigor when standards such as learning about Latin suffixes appear!  Prior to the CCSS, I don't think I would have taken much time to explain to students that Latin was a language that was spoken long ago and that it has left lasting effects on our language today!  Instead, I probably would have just worked with adding -ed, -ing, -ly, etc.  The rigor of the standards is clear to me in this standard!

  Reflection: Who would have guessed? Latin in third grade!
