- Put students into two teams. Ask the teams to write five questions they’d like to ask you.
- Then ask for a volunteer from each team to sit at the front of the class. They are going to imagine they are you, and spend a few minutes ‘in the teacher’s shoes’!
- The teams ask their questions and the students at the front who are in your shoes must try to answer the questions as they think you would answer them.
- You decide whose response is closest to your own answer to the question and award points accordingly.
(Thanks to Andy Gemmel for this idea.)
