Get to know your students and encourage practicing their speaking, listening, and note taking skills at the same time. Students will participate in a triad interview activity where they will take on the different roles of interviewer, interviewee, and note taker. At the end of three rotations students will use someone else's notes to write a piece about their peer. This activity is a fun way to encourage listening and speaking in the classroom.
