Assignment: Vocabulary

From your selected reading, identify at least 3 words which seem vital to an accurate understanding of the text. These might be words that are unfamiliar to you, or words which are used in a unique, special way in the text.

Use context clues, word parts, and dictionaries as needed to help you come to a working definition of the terms as they are used in this reading selection.

Write a paraphrase of a definition for each of the 3 words. Consider using these paraphrased definitions in the Summary and Analysis Essay, to help you show the importance of these terms in the text.
