Vocabulary Pictures

To assist in learning vocabulary for their final exam, the class of 2010 created visual tableaus of their vocabulary words. You can see a few examples below. As you prepare for your first quarter exam, I would encourage you to create your own visual tableaus for the vocabulary and post your pictures here on the wiki. I will feature the best tableaus on the class blog. Be sure that you caption your photos with the word, part of speech and definition in context. Thanks to Sinda, Gabe, Loic and Stephanie for their creative idea--last year's English II students got the highest vocab grades on their finals EVER!
