Students must be acquainted with the vocabulary of the topic and be familiar with the use of Windows Movie Maker or iMovie in which they edit their talkshows.
Students can be asked to write a short text on the differences between their own family and the families of their classmates they heard about during the talk show.
Students have done well if:
Try to make groups that combine students who are from different cultural backgrounds and who do not know each other very well yet in order to get more realistic conversations and increase the cultural exchange within a group.
Set precise deadlines to conclude the task. Since students will have to do some research on their families at home, they need to know precisely how much time they have between lessons to interview familymembers.
Be precise in setting the goals of the task and in explaining the evaluation criteria.
The task was created to develop language competences and to develop social competences by encouraging students to show part of their culture and life.
Engage teachers in the inclusive use of ICT in the language lesson.
Encourage teachers to adopt TBLT and CEFR in their practice.
This task shows students that they all have different backgrounds, which is a common fact in every class in every country.
