  7. 7. People Pictures There are so many ways you can use people pictures. Here are some ideas to get you started. • 20 questions with famous people (is it a man? is he a singer?) • describing people using picture; what are they doing; What happened or what is happening? •create a story from the picture • write the sequence of a story for the picture and share.

  9. 9. Creating Captions • You can also do a lot with cartoons, news pictures, or oddly-themed pictures. Have the students write their own captions to create a punch line. • You can utilize news stories or current events and have them write short captions that tell what is happening in the picture using a reporter tone. I have even used newspaper cartoons by whiting out all the dialogue and ask students to fill in their own dialogue and/or captions • You can give them perimeters or you can leave it wide open. • Challenge their critical thinking skills and creativity for powerful results by asking them to think beyond what is happening in the given picture ASTEVIA HAJNY – ENGLISH TEACHERS’ TRAINING.

  11. 11. Cut-Up Stories • You can practice things like sequence, directions, story-telling, and various tenses with cut-up stories. • Essentially it is a puzzle made of photographs. Have a stack of 8-10 photographs that are related so that they can be put in some kind of order (sequence, what happened, solve a crime, etc.). • Put the students in small groups and have them examine the pictures. • Tell them what the goal is. For example, tell a story by putting these 7 pictures into an order. ASTEVIA HAJNY – ENGLISH TEACHERS’ TRAINING. MEDUCA 2013

  13. 13. Partial Pictures • This is a fun picture activity that can be approached for low intermediate or above. • You can use more abstract pictures or artwork for this activity. • Take a variety of photographs and paste them on either construction paper or cardboard. • You will then want to cover up most of the picture using squares of paper.

  15. 15. Picture Dictation • This activity is often a favorite of students. It is Pictionary on steroids and much more challenging. • The best grammar activities to use this for are: there is/there are, prepositions of place or direction combined with house vocabulary, or what is happening in the picture. • Put the students into pairs and give each student a picture, face down. Tell them to take a turn describing their picture to their partner with several sentences and descriptions. The partner has to draw what their partner tells them.
