A DONKEY'S STORY
GOAL & METHOD
GOAL#1 : LEARNERS AUTONOMY AND SELF-DETERMINATION
METHOD#3: encourage communication skills.
Advised Age Group
Ask learners to observe the comic strip individually. Ask them what the pictures suggest; learners should write the answer individually. You can decide to use a minimum amount of words and/or a given set of words to describe the comic strip.
Once learners are ready ask them to meet in small groups – or create them yourself – to comment on what they have written, and to reach a common conclusion.
Prepare ahead of time a set of points that learners may use to provide comments during the group part.
This activity aims at improving observation and analysis in conflict situations. It stimulates creativity in finding solutions to problematic situations.
Conclusions might be about competition and cooperation, and possible creative and cooperative solutions. It is important that learners realize that working together is always much better for everyone.
