This is a set of questions that can be used with the step to the line activity. Add or subtract questions to fit the needs of your class. This activity can take anywhere between 15 minutes and 40 minutes depending on the length and depth of the debrief.
1. Step to the line exercise: have students stand about 6 feet behind an imaginary line or a line that is created with tape. Before asking the questions, inform students that they should try to observe patterns while the class is answering the questions.
2. Ask students the step to the line questions from the attached handout. For example, "step to the line if you speak more than 1 language." After students step to the line, the teacher asks them to move back to the original line.
3. After all of the questions have been asked, have students make observations about things that surprised them. This often leads to an extended discussion.
