Vocabulary Graffiti Assignment
These were handed in by a couple of my students. The instructions: Demonstrate understanding of a vocabulary word by showing 3 synonyms and 3 visual images illustrating the word. These students showed colorful understanding of the word "desist" and "passive." Their work shows creativity and my hope is that they won't soon forget these terms. I tell my students that building their vocabulary is like putting "money in the bank" and while I am not sure they believe me they humor me and attempt to use their new words in interesting ways. I am always on the lookout for inventive strategies to teach new words.
