as a language assistant my job is to basically get the students to speak english. all of my activities for class should prompt discussion and so on...
this is my fave activity that i've done. i chose 5-6 random pictures (of my friends, because it would be more fun for me - tee hee) and had them create a television series based on the photos.
sometimes individually, sometimes in groups, it depended on the skill level of the students. it was fun to see how creative (or not) the students would be. after their presentations i would tell them the true stories of my friends, and they'd apologize for what they said about them. ha ha!
