This activity involves 20 vocabulary words in the context of a Middle East peace negotiator's diary. The words come from a list of 240 words I created by cross referencing vocabulary which occurs most frequently on all 3 of the most common standardized tests.. This material includes an activity to write your own definition, a matching activity (which can be used in addition to or instead of the first), and discussion questions using the words.
Please note that this journal doesn't present a political point of view advocating for either side in the conflict. It's simply the experience of the negotiations through the eyes of a fictional negotiator.
