Working and jobs #1
How did you pick this theme or topic?
I thought that talking about jobs and working would be interesting and productive; it’s a vast topic.
How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
Interviews in pairs
How did students react?
They reacted very well. They had a lot of things to say and we didn’t have time to finish the debate.
Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes they engaged a lot with each other since they had to interview each other, and share experiences.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Please attach a copy.
