Reality shows (and plans for Spring Break)
How did you pick this theme or topic?
I wanted to introduce the project and I also wanted to talk about a topic that most young people are interested in – tv and reality shows.
How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
How did students react?
They reacted well. They talked a lot and shared a lot of ideas but with the general discussion, they often tended to go off topic.
Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes they engaged a lot with each other and then with me.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Please attach a copy.
