About This Class

This class is designed for anyone who wants to build a stronger personal vocabulary. I will show you how to identify the best words to learn, how to choose a good definition, and how to accurately use the word, all within the context of creating a playful yet memorable, illustrated Powerpoint slide of the new word.  You can create an entire personal dictionary filled with your own new words, illustrated, defined and modeled. You can also use the Power Point slide show as a study tool to deepen your retention and understanding of your new words.
