Have your students create a talk show! This is a member of about 55 other activity templates that are based on the Multiple Intelligence Theory. This template uses the following multiple intelligences: linguistic, interpersonal and kinesthetic. This template was designed as a mixed ability level cooperative learning activity for middle school.
It starts off like all of the others in the series with students choosing roles: writer, reader, taskmaster/timekeeper, talk show host and talk show guest(s). The students will read the rubric before they begin the activity. There is an example of a talk show and then the students will create a talk show based on the content that is provided in the template by their teacher. They will make a copy of their script for each person in the group. They will create costumes and props, practice their skit and then perform it for the class.Each step includes appropriate time limits to help students stay on task and move along. There is a rubric to help you grade.
