In my twenty three years in the EFL classroom, I don't remember not resorting to drawing while teaching. After being talked into it, I decided to create this blog to share my illustrations and related activities, mostly for children. I hope you enjoy and make use of them as well. Let's draw then....shall we?

John Lennon - A Short Biography
Dani Lyra asked me to draw a set of drawings about John Lennon´s biography in order to use it as a teaser.The teaching point here is the past form of the verbs. The teacher prints the images and displays them randomly. Students guess the sequence of events and come up with the story. Afterwards, teacher plays the video, so students can check the correct order. The other way around is also possible, that is, show students the video first and then, check whether they remember the sequence. In the end, students research information about late famous people and write a short biography each. Here are a few questions to guide them:
1) When and where was he/she born?
2) What did he/she do?
3) When and how did he/she die?
