Back to Back


A description/a piece of text.

What to do:

Students should sit back to back with each other.
One by one they should read out their descriptions. Whilst one is reading the other is to draw what they hear.

I have used this to get students to understand the characteristics of gothic characters or to analyse language features in text. 


Once the students has drawn their image they could annotate it using quotes from the description/text they are having read to them.
