Kaiser (n.)

You might find this context clues worksheet on the noun kaiser useful, especially if you’re teaching a global studies class that addresses German politics in the second half of the nineteenth century, and, of course, World War I. Please do remember that this is a derivation of the Latin cognomen Caesar, appended to Augustus, Rome’s first emperor. Assisting students in taking that knowledge a step further you can demonstrate to students how far this word traveled by pointing out that the Russian emperor’s title Czar also derives from Caesar.
