In the case of this series, the sum is definitely more than the total of its parts. As the most important Latin and Greek roots are studied, students increase their vocabularies far more than the 240 words actually presented, since these roots form the basis for many additional words. Roots are grouped thematically in worktexts, with each of the sixteen lessons in every book introducing up to 15 words derived from two or more classical roots. Each lesson begins with a "root dictionary". The root and root forms are shown and defined in bold type, followed by English word(s) derived from that root. Each English word is shown in dictionary format with pronunciation key, definition(s) and word forms each followed by a sentence showing correct word usage in context. Small side boxes list additional words that are formed from the same root. A variety of exercises based on synonyms, antonyms, analogies, vocabularies in context, and sentence completion are provided at the end of lessons to insure mastery. The many literary, historical and geographical references are designed to increase the student's cultural literacy. After every two lessons, a creative or expository writing assignment is suggested, using words from the lessons , allowing the student to put into practice the words he's learned.

Answers are available in the answer key, but if you want a little more help, opt for the Teacher Key. The Teacher Key is a valuable resource, as it complements, extends, and enriches the series. It provides tips for individual learning needs and shows how to ensure that students are building upon earlier skills. It gives support for every lesson, provides blackline masters to reinforce key words, gives additional review activities and vocabulary games, and includes a glossary and answer key for the student books.

A test booklet (with answers) is available. You get a lot of educational value for your money here. This series would be beneficial to parents too - especially those that didn't attend parochial school or study the classical languages!

I liked Vocabulary Classical Roots C for my high-schooler and am continuing with the next book. The tests provide a nice evaluation of how well my student is absorbing the information. They are simple multiple-choice and easily graded. I also appreciated that they have a section on word analogies and I was able to detect that this is an area where my student needs to spend some focus.

I've used Wordly Wise vocabulary for 4 children, but found the high school versions to be confusing and not follow the format established through all the other books. I now use VFCR and love how students are learning Greek and Latin roots.

Succinct and thorough
I have used this series for the last several years. It is easy to adapt to a variety of teaching styles and can also be used for independent work. I often assigned essays using the vocabulary to facilitate mastery for my student.
Student gives this a thumbs up as well!
