Course Aims & Objectives
being met through this activity are for students to:
Time to create your own World of Language.
First, make a list of 16 words for each of the five senses. Select words that are important to you. In choosing these words, search for the exact word to convey your meaning. Be specific!
Next, select ten words showing action. You may choose words that end in ing or simple forms of verbs.
Now select nine “free” words: words that are important to you and do not fit anywhere else on the chart. You may include words just for the sound of them or for how they make you feel.
Lastly, choose one abstraction or concept word. An abstraction represents an idea that you cannot know through your senses. For example, you cannot touch or see the concept of happiness, but two children playing with a puppy gives the idea of happiness. Before deciding on your abstraction, write down all the ideas you value; circle one. Then create a cluster for the word you choose as your abstraction (you may not use the abstraction of happiness as it was exemplifiedin the directions of the assessment).
The following Word Worlds were created this year by juniors.
