Further Explanation

El estudiante debe identificar el significado de algunos prefijos y cómo éstos modifican una palabra. El estudiante debe poder encontrar el significado de una palabra con prefijo en el contexto de una lectura.

Affixes are the word elements that can be added before (as a prefix) or after (as a suffix) a root word to change its meaning in a sentence. Students will need to use their knowledge of commonly used affixes to determine the meaning of words they encounter when reading and when expressing their own ideas. For instance, the prefix sobre- (which means above, beyond) attached at the beginning of the word humano (human), changes the meaning of this word to exceeding ordinary human power or sobrehumano (superhuman).
