How did you structure the class?

Greetings, announcements, general questions

Activity 1: “Two Truths and One Lie”. Students work in groups of three. Each of them should tell three stories (‘’I don’t like cats” is not a story!) to the others. Then they ask this person questions in order to catch him up on lying. After that they take turns.

Activity 2: “Collective Story”. A teacher writes down on a whiteboard a phrase. It can be something like: “Katya missed her train and her takes an unexpected turn”. Students sit down in a circle. The first student has one minute to tell what happens next. When the time is over, the next student starts talking and continues the story, and so on.

Activity 3: “Story Cubes”.  Students are divided into two teams. Each team gets Story Cubes and the show begins. They should create a story and then present it to each other.

What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)

A whiteboard, Story Cubes

What worked well in this class? What did not work?

The class worked out great! Students had a lot of fun, they talked and laughed a lot.

How could this class be improved/ modified?

I would leave it as it is.
