Paradigm (n)

Alright, here is another one of Merriam-Webster’s Words of the Day rendered as a context clues worksheet on the noun paradigm. This word, means “a philosophical and theoretical framework of a scientific school or discipline within which theories, laws, and generalizations and the experiments performed in support of them are formulated; broadly : a philosophical or theoretical framework of any kind.”

Needless to say, this is a very important word and concept for learning and for categorizing knowledge. Students, especially college-bound students, really must know this word by the time they don their mortarboards and walk across the stage at graduation.
