A Lesson Plan on the Greek Word Root Anthrop/o

It’s a very productive root in English, and at the root of a lot of words used in scholarly and academic discourse, so I expect this lesson on the Greek word root anthrop/o, which means man and human, should be useful to teachers in several disciplines. I start this lesson with this context clues worksheet for the noun humanity to provide a basis for the heuristic work this scaffolded worksheet with an independent practice assignment requires of students. The context clues worksheets can serve as the prior knowledge students will need to help them understand the meaning of this Greek word root.

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.
