Memorandum

ACTIVITY 1

We all know these tongue twisters! Have fun with tongue twisters by seeing how quickly they can be read/said – without getting confused! They are found in the learners’ module.

Discuss with the learners

  • what makes this kind of poetry unique
  • the style of this kind of poetry
  • rhyme
  • alliteration

Encourage the learners to find other tongue twisters and to bring them to class to read or recite. This kind of poem lends itself to lots of fun – and ultimately the pupils will enjoy poetry. Groups of learners, reciting or reading tongue twisters, can compete against each other.

Encourage the learners to display their choices on the pinboard, or allow them to paste their tongue twister onto an extra page in their unit of work.

Poetry is for enjoyment. Keep this in mind at all times.

ACTIVITY 2

Finding out about interviewing:

Now give them the instructions:

Work with a partner.

One of you is the interviewer and must interview the other.

You may select topics of your own.

Use current news stories.

You may only use 1 prop each.

Allow the learners to complete the checklist below, before presenting their interview to the rest of the class.

Remember that it is never easy interviewing someone. It is a skill that needs to be practised. Allow the learners to practise in class – so that you can help if necessary. It is simple if you allow half the class to practise at one time (a bit noisy!) while the other half of the class ‘ tutors’ them.

The following checklist can be put up on newsprint, on the chalkboard or even handed out to the learners, before the time. This serves as a guide while they are working in their groups.

Checklist

1. The questions lead to informative answers. Yes No
2. The interviewer spoke clearly and audibly. Yes No
3. Enough time was given to answer properly. Yes No
4. The topic was interesting and newsworthy. Yes No
5. The interviewer introduced the guest. Yes No
6. This was an enjoyable task. Yes No
