In this presentation, the presenter introduced a coloring activity based on a low-level textbook of English anecdotes. The textbook displays a monochrome illustration for each story on every two pages, and students are assigned to color the illustration of each unit towards the end of the class, when they have completed the reading practice and relevant exercises and understand the story fully. After this coloring activity, each student examines the work of the other students, asking them questions about their work and exchanging their impressions with one another. These activities aim at strengthening the community among classmates and enhancing their learning attitudes towards the English language.
During the presentation, the presenter also offered an opportunity for the audience to experience the actual activities, share their work, and discuss their ideas about the activities. As coloring is a favorite activity for children and even for adults these days, the application of similar activities for different age groups was also be explored.
