Why is it important to teach Greek and Latin roots and affixes? 
Simply put, teaching Greek and Latin roots and affixes allows students to construct their own vocabularies, in the wild and on the fly. Educators who choose to teach roots leverage word parts, creating opportunities for students to grow their vocabularies exponentially. Each root a student acquires can lead to the understanding of twenty or more English words (Rasinski, Padak, Newton, & Newton, 2008)
