8-1 Character Interview

Ask learners to pair up and choose a character from the story (David, Surgeon Dale or Franklin). One person takes on the role of the character and the other an interviewer. Ask them to answer the questions on the handout together. They can practice their interview and then perform it for the class.

8-2: Take a Stand

Make up cards that say agree and disagree and put them up at opposite ends of the class. Read the statements below and ask learners to stand by the card that best represents what they believe. Ask them to discuss the statement and why they agree or disagree with it. Ask each group to try and persuade the other group they are right. At the end ask if anyone has changed their opinion.
