To aid analysis at KS3, we sometimes use these connotation ‘magic’ circles. The idea is that the key word goes in the middle and students build on the connotations to aid their analytical paragraphs. These do not need to be limiting, they are simply a snazzy way of mindmapping and stretching those connotations and associations further. You can include them in a paragraph in many different ways without limiting students to merely these key words. Encourage them to use them in separate sentences in their anaylsis and explain the reasoning behind as well as the effect overall.
