A Short Exercise on the Greek Word Root Agog

Here’s a worksheet on the Greek word root agog, which you will know doubt recognize as the basis of the word pedagogue. It means leader and to lead. With another Greek root, ped/o (child), you can see how pedagogue means, literally, “leader of children,” i.e., teacher.

Unlike the longer word root exercises on this site, this is a short exercise meant to open a class session before continuing on to a period-length lesson.
