Time for some Communication? Try this Stress Test for fun!
This activity recreates the Stress Test on pg. 234 so as to make it a partner activity.
It is set up so that partners interview each other to determine their Stress Level.
• Students ask partners questions about things that have occurred in their lives
• They must jot down the points associated with the responses.
• After they have both interviewed each other, they find out their results.
The following gives you an idea of how Partner A interviews Partner B:
Modelo : Tú ves : sentirse enojado o frustrado
Tú preguntas : ¿ Te sientes enjojado/a o frustrado/a con frecuencia ?
Si tu compañero responde "Casi siempre" , anota un 5.
Si responde" Con frecuencia", anota un 4, etc.
The following is an example of how the 2nd part of the Stress Interview works:
Ahora, pregúntale a tu compañero si ha pasado por los siguientes sucesos en el último año y anota los puntos correspondientes:
Modelo : Mudarse o asistir a una nueva escuela
Tú preguntas: ¿ Te has mudado o has asistido a una nueva escuela en el último año?
This exercise takes rather a long time as they are truly communicating.
*** This activity makes the exercise much more communicative and fun.
This activity involves the Stress Test on page 234 of the lesson. Students interview each other about their feelings & things that have occurred in their lives in order to determine their level of stress. They have a " Hint" verb and then must create the question to ask. They make a note of the points the partner receives which is determined by the answer given. It takes rather a long time as they are really communicating and thinking about their answers. My students had fun with it ! Instructions included.
