After winter break you and your students need this! Allow students time to get acquainted with one another, talk, move around and eventually share out about their classmates. Print and make copies of this activity now, so that you have it ready on the first day back of the new year. The interviews will take between 15-25 minutes, giving students a chance to engage with one another and write down their interviews. Then, you can decide what and how much students will share with the class (potentially another 10-30 minutes of discussion!). This is a great way to engage and welcome students back to school!
After the interviews:
Pick one student to share one of his interviews. Student can read all questions with answers, or one set question with answers, or a question and answer of choice (teacher decide before hand!). Then, popcorn the discussion around. So, if Tom reads his interview of Steve, Steve would then go next and share one person he interviewed, so on and so forth until the entire class has shared one part of break.
