"My students made six times more As...why hasn't anyone thought of this before?" - Melissa Skinner, High School English Teacher No longer do students have to try to memorize long boring vocabulary lists by using archaic rote memory techniques. Vocabulary Cartoons makes learning vocabulary fun and easy by using brain-friendly memory aids in the form of visual and rhyming mnemonics. A mnemonic is a device used to improve memory. It helps you remember something by associating it with something you already know. Mnemonic devices have been used in many forms including keywords, acronyms, rhymes, poems, songs and visual aids. For example, you may remember this mnemonic from grade school, "Columbus sailed the ocean blue in fourteen hundred ninety-two." This helps you remember when Chistopher Columbus discovered America. Vocabulary Cartoons incorporates a visual and rhyming mnemonic for every vocabulary word. Students learned 72% more words with 90% retention in actual school tests. This book is a must for visual learners, ADD, ESE and all college bound students. Excellent teaching resource for improving standardized test scores like the common core, SAT, and ACT. All 290 words found in this book are taken from SAT and ACT word lists and after every ten words there is a matching and fill-in-the-blank review quiz. Recommended for 7th - 12th grade students.

50 years of an iconic classic! This international bestseller and inspiration for a beloved movie is a heroic story of friendship and belonging. No one ever said life was easy. But Ponyboy is pretty sure that he's got things figured out. He knows that he can count on his brothers, Darry and Sodapop. And he knows that he can count on his friends—true friends who would do anything for him, like Johnny and Two-Bit. But not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids whose idea of a good time is beating up on “greasers” like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect—until the night someone takes things too far. The Outsiders is a dramatic and enduring work of fiction that laid the groundwork for the YA genre. S. E. Hinton's classic story of a boy who finds himself on the outskirts of regular society remains as powerful today as it was the day it was first published. "The Outsiders transformed young-adult fiction from a genre mostly about prom queens, football players and high school crushes to one that portrayed a darker, truer world." —The New York Times "Taut with tension, filled with drama." —The Chicago Tribune "[A] classic coming-of-age book." —Philadelphia Daily News A New York Herald Tribune Best Teenage Book A Chicago Tribune Book World Spring Book Festival Honor Book An ALA Best Book for Young Adults Winner of the Massachusetts Children's Book Award From the Trade Paperback edition.

11+ Vocabulary Cartoons 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 11 plus Exam -Synonyms/Antonyms and sentences for EACH word - Over 1500 high frequency 11+ words in total!
