Doing a role play, as suggested in this week’s Getting Started section, can be a great way to bring a story or issue to life for your class. However, some students may be too shy or self-conscious to participate in a role play. Don’t force anyone to participate if they don’t want to, but encourage everyone to take part. If you have a very large class, you might have a group of three students perform a role play for another group of three rather than in front of the whole group. This may make it less threatening.
