Goal of the class:

How did you structure the class?
I advertised up-coming cultural activities.
I ask students about American police. Do you talk to police? When do you speak to police? How do you find them?
I distribute a copy of handout. On it there are several vocabularies concerning police. They will be key words in case we talk to police. We check them one by one. If a student knows the meaning of a word, he/she explains it. Otherwise, I do instead of them.
Give one picture sheet to each student. One student is a witness who saw a robbery, and the other is a police officer. The police officer asks the witness questions to find which man in the picture is the thief. When the police officer knows who the thief is. s/he tells the number for him to the witness and checks if it s correct.
On the backside of the handout is a skit. one act as a police and the other does a guy who lot his/her wallet. By reading the skit students practice how to ask police to look for his/her lost property.
What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)
