Welcome to my shop, which I'll be filling with language/lit/ed-tech resources.
I'm also interested in 3D virtual worlds, and some of the resources I'm developing now are about how to use these exciting environments.
This is a challenging etymology resource intended for students that are particularly interested in language and the history of language. First, it asks students to define a number of etymology terms (e.g. cognate, derivative, loan word), and then it presents a number of questions that has them figuring out how words transform over time and how languages are related to each other. It has students coming up with their own examples of language transformations by doing some digging, and seeing how modern English words are related to or derived from Old English, Latin, Greek, French, and Spanish.
At the end of the worksheet, students should have a better sense of how languages change over time and how English is related to other languages.
