common classroom furniture and writing aids, camera (not a condition)

Suggestions for use:

Students remain divided in groups 1. – 6. as in activity 5.

Students who play the role of reporters meet and agree on working out and publishing an article about blood donation in a local (school) paper, on the Internet or on a school notice board. If they still have doubts they can ask peer-experts (excluding those presenting at the conference, activity 5). They can finish the article at home and have it published by the following lesson.

Students who take the role of reporter (TV staff) are supposed to organise a 5-minute interview with a doctor, genetics and physiology experts, and a transfusion center staff member. They can ask experts (excluding those presenting at the conference). Their task is also to arrange the furniture to imitate a TV studio and the rest of the students watch the interview as audience. An interviewer can ask each expert two questions that have to be brief and interesting for the audience – common citizens. They can divide the roles as they want: who will be the chair, who will prepare the scene, who will take the part of the director, who will be in charge of the camera.

When the interview is ready, students role-play it. If there is a camera available, the role-play can be recorded and used as an introduction to the topic related to blood or can be placed on the class web page.

Possible questions:

Students will formulate their own questions. There are many possible questions for this activity.
