The class was only one hour, but I recall preparing materials for 3 hours before it started. One of those activities involved the students walking around the room and collecting introductory level information from each other.
I wanted them to ask each other questions about where they were from, what kind of hobbies they had, what their favorite food was and so forth. The task seemed easy enough to me. After all, it was a simple ask, answer and record information on a piece of paper activity. However, what unfolded before me was eye opening.
I thought that I had done a decent job giving instructions for the task. I had spoken slowly and clearly. I had even given a demonstration of what the students were to do by acting it out at the front. This is what they had taught me on my teacher training course. But what I did not expect to see was...
What do you think could have happened during the activity?
