Do you want to increase your vocabulary? Do you like having fun and being creative? In Vocab Madness, we will do some serious play with words, from the small and humble to the esoteric and unusual.
Research shows that we learn vocabulary by using words, and that the deepest learning involves hands-on creativity.
Unlike a more traditional (and less effective) approach to mastering vocabulary, we’re going to be creative and have fun, learning about English language spelling, history, and grammar along the way!
Note to parents:
- Vocab Madness is offered twice a year with two different sets of vocabulary, so students may take it twice in any order.
- This course is part of a three-course sequence including Etymology and Vocab Madness sections A and B. The three courses are designed to be taken in any order. Students who excel in the three courses will be well-prepared to take the National Classical Etymology Exam.
