Strategic vocab game gets students digging into roots and affixes
Pros: Learning progression feels natural, and the challenge is just right.
Cons: Slow-paced, and students might guess their way through; there's no way to ensure students are learning the meanings of morphemes or words.
Bottom Line: This is a win for building vocabulary and word attack skills, but teachers need to provide context and additional instruction to make learning last.
