The dictionary or terms assignment is a companion to your weekly readings and discussion. Throughout the semester, write down and define terms/concepts unfamiliar to you that you read in a text or discover in other materials. This will serve as your personal dictionary. There is no right or wrong word to choose – it is entirely up to you. However, every time you write down a term, date when you came across the term. Use the table below to guide your entries.

Date….

Term……….

Description. Where did you first come across the term (class reading, discussion in group or other place, article other source)?

Definition… (Define the term and reference source you used to define the term. Use APA format to cite the source)

Example or as used in a sentence.
