Inspiring children to read with simple drawings

In my recent session on classroom drawing at the IH Barcelona ELT Conference, I explain how my son's primary school teacher had inspired him to do better at school by putting not ticks but quick doodles of football players on his work.

Toni, however, remembered not so much the football players as the drawings Agustí used to do on everyone's reading records…

As I suggested during the workshop, even if you never draw on your board, learn to doodle, and — especially if they are young — doodle on your learners' work!
