Semantic Feature Analysis

It is a strategy to help students see relationships between vocabulary, ideas and content.

It is a graphic organizer
• Anders and Bos (1986) suggest that students can learn how to use this process on their own which helps with their own learning.
Science as a pre or during instruction strategy. Use the image below to brainstorm information about types of rocks.

Sample: using the information below can you fill in the semantic feature analysis?

A quadrilateral is a four-sided polygon. A hexagon is a polygon with six sides. An octagon is a polygon with eight sides. A tetrahedron is a polyhedron (three dimensional polygon) made up of four equilateral triangles.

The information can then be shared.
• Balance is the concept of visual equilibrium, and relates to our physical sense of balance. It is a reconciliation of opposing forces in a composition that results in visual stability. Most successful compositions achieve balance in one of two ways: symmetrically or asymmetrically. Balance in a three dimensional object is easy to understand; if balance isn't achieved, the object tips over. To understand balance in a two dimensional composition, we must use our imaginations to carry this three dimensional analogy forward to the flat surface.
• Proportion refers to the relative size and scale of the various elements in a design. The issue is the relationship between objects, or parts, of a whole. This means that it is necessary to discuss proportion in terms of the context or standard used to determine proportions.
• Rhythm can be described as timed movement through space; an easy, connected path along which the eye follows a regular arrangement of motifs.
• Emphasis is also referred to as point of focus, or interruption. It marks the locations in a composition which most strongly draw the viewer’s attention.
• Unity is the underlying principle that summarizes all of the principles and elements of design. It refers to the coherence of the whole, the sense that all of the parts are working together to achieve a common result; a harmony of all the parts.
