OK! It’s Friday again, and a in-service half-day in this district to boot. Here is a context clues worksheet on the noun patriarch. I can’t remember why I wrote this in the first place (there is, elsewhere on Mark’s Text Terminal, a worksheet on the Latin roots pat and patri, which probably ought to have sufficed for this), but I do think it’s a word high schoolers ought to know.
All of these words mean something related to father, incidentally.
