Bash scripting help

I was writing a bash script and need help with writing one of the functions. Basically what the function would do is go into different directories and run make. The variable is set using a space seperated list of words in a different file. For each of the words in the list it would go into into each directory of a source directory named by each word and run make. Anyone know how to do this?
