Spring Break + Project (Iron chef)
How did you pick this theme or topic?
They had just gone for Spring Break so I thought it was a good idea to use this topic to talk, and I also wanted to talk more about the project.
How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
Discussion in pairs then general
How did students react?
They reacted well and had a lot to say since they had done many things for Spring Break. They also had ideas for the project.
Did they engage with each other and you?
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Sheets of paper
Please attach a copy.
Here is the plan I had with me
Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
1. Spring Break
→ 10 minutes of talk in pairs to tell their Spring Break
→ 10 minutes of sharing; they have to introduce what their partner did
→ 10 min of general discussion about it + what we do in France
→ Iron Chef? Top Chef? Scenario or real competition
→ They have to explain me the meaning
→ They have to vote for what they would prefer doing
→ if two clear teams, then they have to think about arguments to defend their opinion and then express them (think about budget/time to do it/editing?…)
→ we choose something
