Synonym Graphs

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through January 27th, 2023. Join today!


Students will discern the shades of meaning for several synonyms using two methods of ranking and produce a graph.

For example, I might brainstorm synonyms for "happy": ecstatic, joyful, pleased, gleeful.

Then, I could attempt to rank "happy" and its synonyms words using two different methods:

  1. Short-term vs long-term happiness.
  2. Active vs passive happiness.

The synonym "ecstatic", for example, is quite short-term and active, while "joyful" is more long-term but passive.

The registration window closes on January 27th, 2023
