This activity aligns with, but is not limited to, Realidades 1 Tema 4A. Students work in groups of 4 and translate the dialogue to present in class. There are some blanks to fill in with personal information. The group then adds original content. The dialogue centers around accepting and declining invitations.
Students present them in class, either with or without a script. A fun way to submit their written work is via www.itext.com. Students enter their dialogue and it looks like a text message.
This can take 2 or more class periods, depending on whether you have students memorize or videotape the script. A simplified grading scale is at the bottom.
Have fun, and make sure to check out my other Realidades 1 materials.
