Lance has given this update with some changes by Sabrina on Star of the Week. I like how simple it is:
There are notable changes Sabrina has made that everyone should be aware of before adapting this year-long activity to suit their own style, and community. Sabrina’s process:
– Create spreadsheet with the questions, and the response/statement frames.
– Give all students the spreadsheet ahead of time (they fill out their own answers as an activity), and distribute/collect the sheets each day you interview someone.
– Stay with a single student for 3, 4 days and exhaust the questions (they can change answers, and don’t have to stick to the ones they originally wrote).
– Create PPT (from a template for a simple switch of student details) along with a picture of the student, which he/she sends you, on each slide. The next day, present and review the student’s responses with the class (this replaces the less-formal oral review, and places a bit more emphasis on a single student at one time – drawback is that you MIGHT not get to every student).
– Give a simple quiz after every student or two.
To see the one Lance has for his Latin students, which can be translated of course, and to visit Lance’s website, which is excellent:
