Class member diversity - getting to know the teacher and the class members.
Students will work more comfortably with each other and the teacher if they are acquainted with each other.
Alternatives to the Introductions lesson:
Have the students respond to the questions by writing on the background as they would write graffiti on a wall. Add titles or captions to create the bulletin board.
If you wish, add visuals depicting each question. (e.g. What uncommon or rare food have you eaten? The visual could be a picture or drawing of an octopus. Use a clear title.)
Alternative approach to the Inquiry Lesson:
Line students up around the class according to height. Have the tallest move down the line to the shortest so that the students pair themselves. Give them 3 minutes each to interview each other. Students will then introduce their partner to the class, using the information they have just learned. Teacher concludes the inquiry lesson by introducing herself to the class.
