A classroom companion to "Word History: A Guide to Understanding the English Language," this book provides teachers with additional information to help them include the study of word history in their classroom routine. The book presents suggestions and activities that can be used to challenge students to play with words; to give teachers brief explanations for the origins of selected words; to provide exercises that students can work on by themselves; to give teachers sample week-long plans for certain kinds of word study; and to provide supplementary activities for ideas presented in the companion book. Teachers may use the book as a guide to a concentrated study of word history, or as a source of daily 5- to 10-minute brainteasers. The book also presents extensive annotations of six ERIC documents that serve the classroom teacher and an 11-item annotated bibliography of books that move beyond the introductory material in the book and its companion volume.
