  1. Yes, or something like it. Interviewing the students about their dream jobs, as well as roleplaying characters out of books/movies have been a huge hit with the upper level this year. To some degree, with last year’s, too, but their language wasn’t quite there to run with it yet.

    I’ve been doing the Star of the Week with all of my classes (French 1-4) for about 10-15 minutes/day since the start of the second semester. It has been really amazing to see how much they have improved, and with the upper level classes I have a lot more room to follow the conversation wherever it might lead. It’s also been great for getting to know my students better and making the class about them. It’s definitely something that I’m going to keep going during the second semester in future classes. I also really like how it helps me to show students what real conversations are like even though the primary questions are set already.

  3. Star of the week has been my entire curriculum for a group of 7 upper-level students since mid-March. I’ve never seen anything quite like it for building esprit de corps and conversational fluency.
