It is so encouraging to see the lengths that the students will go to when doing their role play assessments. The Grade 8s were dressed up to the nines and there was some great acting going on!

What is even more encouraging, is the quality of  language usage and content of our termly role play. The Grade 10s impressed with challenging debate around topics such as, ” Should the legal drinking age be changed to 21 or not?” and “Do we make demi-gods of reality stars like the Kardashians?”

These debates will be used as the basis for our essay writing this week. The Grade 10s vocabulary and ability to express themselves in Afrikaans has improved with leaps and bounds. I am looking forward to seeing the written versions of the role play and each student’s ability to use their debating skills in an argumentative or discursive essay.
