    Re: Connotation

    Since connotation evokes a particular emotion, you might select some common words and ask your students what they think of when they hear a particular word. For instance, fire would tell a person there is danger; the color green means cool, etc. Be sure that the student understands that connotation brings about a meaning that is not necessarily a dictionary meaning.
