Putsch (n)

Because it came up consistently in connection with Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in Germany when I taught sophomore global studies in New York City, I wrote this context clues worksheet on the German loan word putsch for use with the lesson on Hitler’s infamous Beer Hall Putsch in 1923 (I’m sorry Nietzsche didn’t live long enough to bear witness to this incident; the world would have seen his contempt once and for all for low demagogues like Hitler ).

If you find typos in this document, 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.
