Surface – Deep Word Analysis Continuum by Scott M | Apr 29, 2018 | Uncategorized | 4 comments Get your copy of Info Graphics for Educators here. 4 Comments Brad on April 29, 2018 at 8:31 pm So awesome, as I was just looking at this graphic this morning. This is one of those “holes” in the written literature I think your resource helps fill. If you watched this video, and you haven’t bought yet, I’m telling you…there are things here I haven’t seen in other written resources. As for your thoughts on why we tend to focus on surface structures, I could go the easy route and say it’s easier or simpler to just have students “look up definitions” or ask students to “use in sentences,” but I think it’s more than that. I think many educators fail to see the generative nature of this type of study. I actually had an educator say to me just as I was embarking on this work that he didn’t really see a purpose in etymology for students. However, knowing the histories of the words I’ve studied thus far has really cracked open and solidified a wider spectrum of words than just the one that set me off on my study! Why, alone leads you on a path to production, inductive, deduct, reduce and more!
