This week, the Word of the Week is: describe.
This command word is used in lots of subjects, including: History, Music, Drama and Art.
In everyday use, it means:
‘Give a detailed account in words of.’
Things to think about this week:
- What types of things do you describe on a daily basis? How your day was? What you had for lunch? Directions for how to get somewhere?
- What do examiners mean when they ask you to describe something?
- Do you feel comfortable using the word describe in your written and verbal responses in class?
Ask your teachers about any of these questions this week in class!
