NSTP Library Work (July 3-7)

Instructions: Research one to two definition(s) of the following basic terms and concepts in the various Social Science disciplines listed below. The following (plus the photocopied set of readings last July 1) will be part of our graded recitation next session. You have nothing to submit from this library work but you are encouraged to bring your research notes for reference during the recitation (para kodigo, kumbaga). Textbooks are available at the reserve (for room and overnight use only) and circulation (for room and outside use for about 1-2 weeks) sections of the AS college library. For this purpose, refrain from using any references from the Internet (For now, let’s do it the classical way!). You are also encouraged to do the library research in small groups for convenience, economy and efficiency (tsaka bonding na rin). Good luck po!
