Role play activities are one of the best ways to encourage English Language Learners to practice their speaking skills. This pack includes six different Thanksgiving themed scenarios. Each scenario comes with task cards for Student A, Student B, and Student C and has been carefully written in order to make it possible to do the activity using either groups of two or three.
If your students are anything like my teenagers, you might find they need an extra little push to stay on-task during these types of activites! One possible solution could be giving them a copy of my ‘Role Play Graphic Organizer’ which you can find here:
This not only helps my students plan their dialogue, but also encourages them to practice their writing skills since I always collect this paper after the activity has finished!
In my experience, I am able to complete a role play activity (allowing time for prep, practice, and presentations) in a class of 20-25 students within a one hour class period if I require roughly 1-2 minutes of speaking. If I want a more detailed dialogue (3-5 minutes), then I allow one class period for planning and a second class period for practice/presentations.
