The Timelines of Immigrant Lives
April 27, 2005

Class Work

We will follow Andrew Binks’s activity together:

As an ice-breaker, I encourage my new students to draw a "timeline" of their lives, marking major events; then, in pairs, explain them, using whatever grammar they are comfortable with.


Work alone for 15 minutes to draw a timeline for your own life. Mark the major events on your line.

Then, work with a partner. Each partner will explain their major events for 10 minutes (total 20 minutes).

Whole Class Discussion and Sharing
