How did you pick this theme or topic?
Valentine’s Day was over but relationships are a topic that usually interest students and that involves a lot of speech. Various activities are possible.
How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
Handouts they had to use to ask each other questions
How did students react?
They reacted very well. They asked a lot of questions to each other and were curious to know more about everyone’s life and stories related to the topic of relationships.
Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes they engaged a lot with each other since they had to interview their partner, and they also engaged with me because they were also curious to know more about my opinions and my personal life (haha).
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Please attach a copy.
