Additional Vocab Homework (for Friday)

Post  Oscar on Thu Dec 04, 2008 6:23 am

As you read Chapter 9 in Howard Zinn´s "A People´s History," keep a vocabulary notebook with the words you don´t know. List the word in one column, meaning in another, and your own personal connection in the third column. I will give you a completion grade for your own notebook. Please post your word list in as a reply to this topic. I will try to compile a master list.

Example:

WORD MEANING CONNECTION
antediluvian before the flood (Noah and the Ark) That book is ancient,
antediluvian.
old, ancient
