Star of the Week Baby Pics

Emeka shares:
Another interview idea to use perhaps with level 2 high school students is to have students email to you baby or childhood pictures of themselves. Put them in a Power Point slide show and then display one at a time. Ask the students to guess who is whom.
Ask questions like:
-Where were you born and where did you grow up?
-What did you watch on TV when you were little?
-What toys did you play with?
-What books did you read?
-Were you a brat/little angel…
-Did you have temper tantrums?
-What was your nickname? (best one)

  1. I had a very intense day a few weeks ago because of racial tensions and divisions. There was a shouting match, and the class was in shambles. What saved the day for me, was to have students share a childhood memory, be it a favorite food, tv show, toy, etc. They were able to break through their divisions and find common ground in those childhood memories. We forget how recent early childhood is for our students. Let’s encourage them to revisit that, and maybe they will be okay with having fun in our classes, and shed the armor they have built up during adolescence, if only for one period per day.
