My Students

Using and understanding adjectives is an essential skill in order to describe actions, events, objects, and to clarify. Many students with language deficits struggle with using descriptive words, resulting in vague responses and explanations.

Many of my students require specific assistance with using descriptive words.

At least half of the students I work with have language deficits, and many of them use weak and vague language to communicate with others. The result is often frustrating for both communication partners as the listener struggles to understand and the child struggles to use precise language to express his or her wants, needs, and ideas.

My Project

My students will learn how to use adjectives to describe objects, pictures, events, and actions. Acquiring the ability to use descriptive words in conversation, will help to strengthen my students' language skills and ultimately help to make them better communicators as they are able to clearly describe a specific referent. These materials, consisting of adjective pictures and an adjective activity book, will be used to help to encourage the use of descriptive language in my students.

As Clifton Paul Fadiman said, "The adjective is the banana peel of the parts of speech." The ability to use descriptive words is what makes speech not only rich, but functional.

My students will greatly benefit from these materials that help to encourage the development descriptive language.
