English B ‘Drawing the Story’ Activity
Pre-IB Grade Ten students enjoyed sketching various parts of the story they were reading for comprehension in class before the festive break. The passage was about the history of stamp-collecting in their textbook, under the topic, ‘Hobbies& Interests’, and each group of students was given a few paragraphs to sketch. The students had to discuss the main plot in their paragraphs and how to use pictures to capture that succinctly and effectively. Then they took turns to come to the board to draw their images while their group mates described the story to the class. Everyone had a lot of fun in this activity that allowed them to transfer their thinking from words to visuals, as well as work together to complete their sections of the task.
