Every student wants to take a class with a buddy! Sometimes students start a class not knowing a single person-- this activity will change that. This activity ensures that every student is introduced to a peer and has a level of comfort asking him/her questions in an interview setting.
One of my favorite parts of this assignment is the option to extend throughout the semester or year. Asking students to pair up with their English Buddy is a fast and easy pairing option that gets kids up and moving fast.
This activity can be used in any class or content area and can be renamed from English Buddies to any title that works for you. For example, my Journalism class had J-friends; you might have Math Buddies, Speech Pals, or Physics friends.
I hope you and your students enjoy this product as much as we have in my classroom. Happy Teaching! :) Ms. C311
