Is colouring old fashion?

Colouring in an FCE class? Why not?
Undoubtedly, the use of colours as a mnemonic technique is widely used. How can that be used to write better structured essays? Pretty straightforwardly by colour-coding the main elements of an essay structure.
First, colours are visually powerful and, thus, can create, for instance, a connection between the essay thesis in the introduction and its conclusion. Then, the topic sentence of each paragraph and the supporting evidence are highlighted in the same colour to visualize the logical connection between the two. Next, moving on to language level, different colours are used for topic-related lexical items, complex grammar structures or connectors.
So, remember to grab your crayons before your next English lesson.
