BRIEF OUTLINE: Students choose one character from the worksheet and their partner guesses who they are by asking a series of "Are you...?" questions.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • Guessing worksheets: For lower-level classes, consider using the 2nd memo worksheet, where students can just check off the answer, rather than using the 1st memo worksheet that is for writing.
  •  

 DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After reading through each character to ensure understanding, do a role play with the JTE. Play janken with the JTE. The loser will choose a character and the winner will ask questions. Then reverse the role. The example dialog would go like this if the JTE loses and chooses Obama:
    • ALT: Are you a boy?
    • JTE: Yes, I am. (ALT will take notes.)
    • ALT: Are you from England?
    • JTE: No, I am not. (ALT will take notes.)
    • ALT: Are you from America?
    • JTE: Yes, I am. (ALT will take notes.)
    • ALT: (show students the process of elimination) Do you like basketball and sushi?
    • JTE: No, I don't.
    • ALT: Do you like soccer and hotdogs?
    • JTE: Yes, I do.
    • ALT: Are you Obama?
    • JTE: Yes, I am! (Then, reverse the role. The ALT will choose a character and the JTE will ask questions.)
  2. Then, the ALT and the students play one time to practice. ALT and students will choose a character and the JTE will ask questions. Whatever the JTE asks, have the students look at the character the ALT/students choose and answer the questions.
  3. Then, let the students try it amongst themselves. Give them about 5-6 minutes to finish guessing each other's character and then have them switch partners. Suggestion for switching partners: Row 1, 3, 5 will be the only rows to move. Have the movement go in the shape of an 'S'. Each student in row 1, 3, 5 will move one seat vertically back. The last person in row 1 will move to the last seat in row 3, and the first student in row 3 will move to the first seat in row 5, and the last student in row 5 will move to the first seat in row 1.
