  1. The etymologies could be clearer and more user friendly, but a very informative and comprehensive site. It is important for educators to research the etymologies of content vocabulary before embarking on a new math unit for instance. Front loading content areas with this knowledge has great potential to promote deeper understandings of language AND content.
