What technology, media or props did you use? (satellite tv, internet resources, playmobiles, etc.) Handouts
What worked well in this class? What did not work?
All the students told their story and listened to others. It was really fun because some students told crazy stories and got into the characters. It is an activity to do with both, intermediate and advanced and it takes one hour.
How could this class be improved/ modified?
There are many students in the class so in the end we had to hurry up to introduce everybody´s character. Some people took it too seriously and spoke a lot, not allowing other people participate that much so I needed to balance it out.
