11 plus Vocabulary Cartoons II This is the second volume of the bestselling "11 plus Vocabulary Cartoons" book and has been written due to the strong demand from students, teachers and parents. To improve your memory you must increase the number and variety of your mental associations.When you learn new words, make sure you learn them in a context. It is far easier to remember a picture than an abstract concept. So the trick to remember an abstract word, is to turn it into a picture. And..... It is much easier to picture a sentence rather than picture a word in isolation. When you create the picture, make sure it meets one or more of the following criteria so that it 'sticks'. OUT OF PROPORTION - In all your images, try to distort size and shape. You can imagine things much larger than their normal size or conversely, microscopically small. SUBSTITUTION - You could visualise footballers kicking a television around a football pitch instead of a football, or pens growing on a tree instead of leaves. Substituting an out of place item in an image increases the probability of recall. EXAGGERATION - Try to picture a very large quantity in your images. MOVEMENT - Any movement or action is always easy to remember. HUMOUR - The funnier, more absurd and zany you can make your images, the more memorable they will be. Applying multiple combination of these five principles when forming your images will help make your mental associations truly outstanding and memorable. At first, you may find that you need to consciously apply one or more of the five principles in order to make your pictures sufficiently ludicrous. After a little practice however, you should find that applying the principles becomes an automatic and natural process. Some UNIQUE features of this book; -All the hard work done for you. Over 200 words converted into pictures utilizing the concepts above! -Focus on words likely to appear in the Eleven plus Exam -Synonyms/Antonyms and sentences for EACH word -One word per page allows this book to be used as 11 plus Vocabulary flash cards - Over 1500 high frequency 11 plus words in total!

The Use of Computer Games for SAT Vocabulary Acquisition

In my thesis, I followed two lines of questioning. First, do current, low-end, self-implemented, SAT vocabulary test-preparation materials provide statistically significant gains compared to not studying at all? Second, can online games improve the low-cost SAT vocabulary test-preparation genre? I tested two SAT vocabulary interventions, both based on the keyword methodology, a mnemonic technique designed to help students learn vocabulary by connecting words to phonologically similar words through imagery. The first intervention was a series of books called Vocabulary Cartoons. The second intervention was an online game that I designed and programmed. I based both the content analysis that I used to choose Vocabulary Cartoons and the creation of the online game on two sets of frameworks: a pedagogical framework that I developed and a motivational framework, which I adapted from Calleja (2007). I additionally based the game on design principles unearthed from research by Gee (2003, 2007), Mayo (2009), and Squire (2011). I tested the two interventions against the control activity of reading the book, Gulliver's Travels. In my analysis, I found that being part of the experimental groups was associated with both a greater rate of learning and higher posttest scores given pretest scores than being part of the control group. I however could not distinguish between the experimental groups in terms of their average posttest scores given pretest scores and their rates of learning. Although descriptive statistics demonstrated that the computer program had slightly higher posttest scores given pretest scores and slightly higher rates of vocabulary gain, these differences were not statistically significant. Also, being a member of the control group was associated with spending more time on the assignment than being a member of the experimental groups. Being a member of the computer group was associated with spending more time o
