It is important for sentiments to be leveled to your class and match the language (both literally and culturally) that your students are learning in. To get a feel for sentiments, take a look at examples of them and how they are used.
When you first create your class, you are given the default set of sentiments, which are typically appropriate for English-language students in high school and above. However, sentiments are configurable on a per-class basis, and using the sentiment set selector you can pick between several pre-curated sets from our 90+ English language sentiments teachers and professors have contributed so far, as well as several alternate languages. (Spanish and beta sets for Irish/Gaelic and Arabic.)
A single class usually has between 50 and 60 sentiments.
Customizing beyond the pre-curated sets, or translating them is more involved.
Above you can see the three flavors of each sentiment (Gut/Concise, 1st person/subjective and 2nd person/objective) as well as a preposition if appropriate.
Additional details on each component of the sentiment are available here:
Sentiments are also categorized in three high-level types: Cognitive, Analytical and Emotional, which help with the color-coding that is important to Ponder visualizations.
When you contact support, we will share a google spreadsheet with you that you can update for your class.
