Bureau (n) and Bureaucracy (n)

Today is July 27. On this day in 1859, Helen Keller was born. By every measure an extraordinary woman, she participated in social and economic justice movements and would probably be defined today, by someone like Sean Hannity or Tucker Carlson, as being of “the left”–which I think means anyone politically more liberal than Attila the Hun. James W. Loewen, the historian, sociologist, and author, does an excellent job of clarifying Ms. Keller’s ideological biography in his fine book, Lies My Teacher Told Me. Today is National HIV Testing Day. Finally, it is the birthday of someone who was more important to my childhood than my parents, Bob Keeshan, also known as Captain Kangaroo.

On this first day of the summer break here in New York, here are two context clues worksheet on the nouns bureau and bureaucracy.

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
