    Boarded windows are simply windows that have been boarded up.

    v. board·ed, board·ing, boards
    v. tr.
    To cover or close with boards: board up a broken window.

    To furnish with meals in return for pay.
    To house where board is furnished: board a horse at a stable.

    From: http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=boarded&r=67

    I hope that helps!
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    Boarded up windows

    In AE, both the adjective and the verb is boarded up. We would say that those windows have been boarded up. (Another "up" word! _ :wink: _ )

    :)
