This is an activity out of my reality television unit which provides teachers the opportunity to observe student interactions and sensitivity outcomes.
Students are broken into small groups of 3 or 4 and provided with an activity sheet containing short answer questions. Students will also be provided with a "Genre Sheet" explaining the details of a particular genre of reality television and providing examples. All instructions are provided in the sheets.
This package contains the "Activity Sheet" along with 4 different "Genre Sheets"
It is important to know that no prior knowledge of specific reality television shows are required.
When I did this activity I instructed students to take turns recording answers and to place their name beside each answer they've completed. This helped me to ensure all students participated, while at the same time allowed me to observe in a very general sense.
