Just Like Me!
This process helps build connections between learners to create a sense of community.
- Explain that you will share a series of statements that express an experience, an interest or a characteristic that might be shared by members of the group (e.g., I like to sleep in on the weekends; I like to play team sports; I like to spend time on my own). Construct these statements based on what you know about your learners and their contexts.
- If a statement is true, invite learners to stand and note who in the group shares the same experience, interest or characteristic.
- Ask those who are standing to be seated again in preparation for the next statement.
- When done reading the statements, invite learners to find someone who shared an experience, interest or characteristic and share their experiences.
