the newcomers at school..What activity to choose, not something too childish
(they are 16 years old) nor too demanding for their level in language (B1+).
Should I focus on helping them meet each other by introducing themselves
to the classmates? A cliche. What's more, most of them have known each other
since they were babies..
How about playing a board game using language as the medium and stress the similarities
between learning and playing games?
Not a bad idea, but it could cause a lot of noise and give the wrong message for
the rest of the school year..
So I found -what I think is - the perfect solution:
My Dream School.
- What would it be like?
- What are the things in my school that I like the best?
- How could I change my school to make it better?
- What 's the dream teacher like?
and show them a clip on You Tube, the trailer of Jamie Oliver's Dream School as a stimulus for further discussion
So let's have a nice school year!
