Mapping the Future – English Society Session

Students engaged in a futuristic activity in the English society session. They were divided into groups of three to four students with sequenced letters given to represent each group. They were handed yellow coloured chart papers and asked what that colour symbolised. The students equated this color with happiness, positivity, brightness and optimism.

The students needed to draw four shapes with various categories of study, family, interests and career. One shape like circle ⭕, square ⬜, triangle 🔺 and rectangle had to be chosen to represent each group. The students needed to brainstorm and write points regarding each category. All these shapes needed to overlap in areas of commonality.

This group activity spurred the students’ reflective and thinking skills. It surely introduced them to a different genre of writing.
