Boom (n)

Let me begin this post, on this rainy Monday morning, with wishes of Eid Mubarak to my Muslim friends, neighbors, and students. Then let me offer you this context clues on the noun boom. I wrote this while serving in an economics- and finance-themed high school in the Financial District of Manhattan, so it goes without saying, mostly, that the clues in the five sentences in this worksheet point students toward inferring a definition of “a rapid expansion or increase,” “a rapid widespread expansion of economic activity,” and “an upsurge in activity, interest, or popularity.”

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.
