This unit tends to be very scatterbrained and we've developed a way to make it a little more cohesive. The students will create their own self-introductions and then do interviews in pairs. Afterwards they will turn them all in to the teacher and the ALT will shuffle them then read them off slowly. The students will try to guess who each person is based on the introduction and earn points for their respective teams. It's especially good if you can make one up on the spot about yourself, a fellow teacher, or a fellow ALT if they share the school with you. It's fun for the children and gives you plenty to do during the lesson.
