Description of the task:
Oral Instructions for Interpersonal Task
Throughout the unit, students have practiced sharing personal information as well as asking questions to learn more about others. It is expected that they will be prepared to complete the task using some of the following structures:
As a warm-up I will give an example of each as listed above by modeling a conversation with a puppet. Students will also interact with the puppet, and take turns asking and responding to questions. At this time I will show them the rubric and my expectations for the Interpersonal task.
We will then begin poster work and the interpersonal task in pairs. Students
will be working on their presentational posters as I observe pairs completing
the interpersonal task. To minimize confusion, I will give instructions
to each pair individually. The instructions for the interpersonal task
will be written in the students' L1 and read aloud. Each pair will be
given 10 minutes to complete the task. As they interact I will score them
using a rubric. Upon completion of the task, they will return to their
seats and use the information they have gathered on their Venn diagram
to add to their presentational poster.
