Description of Activities

The teacher will give a brief description of the case after he/she had distinctly demonstrated what a role-play is. The teacher will choose two students who are interested in demonstrating the parent/daughter conflict/conversation. The role play will begin promptly after the brief presentation of the case.


Key Vocabulary / Phrases (if applicable)




The teacher who is proctoring the activity will certainly notice if students are implementing the learning tools they have been notified. It is the teacher's duty to take notes during the role play, give feedback and reflect on the students' performance.



The students can give feedback, express their opinions and share some thoughts. Listening to one another, and discussing certain aspects of the activity will certainly consolidate and enhance their learnings.



The teacher should not interfere while the role play is running. Students must feel entirely released and relaxed so they would complete the role play in the best way they can.
