The Weekly Text, December 16, 2016: An Exercise on the Greek Word Roots The and Theo

This week, I fell under whatever it is that has afflicted most of the faculty at my school. My doctor, when I finally made it to him, diagnosed bronchitis, something I contract with irritating regularity working in a windowless building with almost 800 adolescents.

So, the Text for this week is nothing special, just this word root worksheet on the Greek roots the and theo. It means, as you probably already know, God. It is surely useful in social studies classes where words like polytheism and monotheism crop up regularly. Given the results of the presidential election, kids might need to know the word theocracy as well.

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
