VISUAL VOCABULARY
VISUAL VOCABULARY

A visual dictionary is a dictionary that primarily uses pictures to illustrate the meaning of words. Visual dictionaries are often organized by themes, instead of being an alphabetical list of words. For each theme, an image is labeled with the correct word to identify each component of the item in question. Visual dictionaries can be monolingual or multilingual, providing the names of items in several languages. An index of all defined words is usually included to assist finding the correct illustration that defines the word.

Visual Vocabulary will help you to better understand vocabulary by explaining the meaning of the term in your own words and creating visual images that represent the word. Adding an illustration or drawing will help you to clarify your explanation and understanding of the vocabulary word.

Instructions

 

1.You will be assigned several key terms from each chapter/unit that are critical to your understanding of the historical time period.

 

2.Examine the definition of the words by reading them in the context of the lesson they are included in (read the entire paragraph the word is in, and more if the concept is continued in the section). You may also look in the glossary and/or dictionary. Write the meaning of the key term in your own words.

 

3.Think about examples of the word

 

4.Think about what visual or symbol best represents the word. Create a visual to represent the definition or example of the word. You may also include a sentence that describes the visual and uses the key term.
