12 Powerful Words

I was curating content for articles, ideas and information to be posted here at the12list.com when I chanced upon this youtube video about the 12 powerful words to be learned by students to:

  • Better understand what each question means
  • Become familiar with words that require higher order thinking skills
  • Help to relieve test anxiety
  • Help you achieve better on tests
And the 12 powerful words are:
  1. trace - to outline
  2. analyze - break it down 
  3. infer - read between the lines
  4. evaluate - to judge
  5. formulate - build and create
  6. describe - tell me all about it
  7. support - back it up
  8. explain - tell me why
  9. summarize - the short version
  10. compare - things are alike
  11. contrast - things are different
  12. predict - think about the future
Watch the youtube video posted by Mr Beyah to appreciate the 12 powerful words.
