Condone (vt)

On a sunny Monday afternoon, Presidents’ Day 2020, I’m listening to Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers (one of the earliest iterations, featuring the late, great Clifford Brown) play Dizzy Gilliespie’s masterpiece “A Night in Tunisia.” I’m on break, and man, do I need it.

Here is a context clues worksheet on the verb condone, which is only used transitively–a direct object must follow it. I cannot think of single reason why students, upon their high school graduation, shouldn’t know this oft-used English word.

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.
