Our parents always have ideas about what is good for our future. They want us to choose successful careers and do everything a “normal” man or woman is supposed to do.
Billy Elliot decided he wanted something different for himself: he wanted to be a ballet dancer. He struggled to convince his family to help him reach his dreams and make it come true.
7th básico students are working on a role-play in which they have to convince their parents about an unusual profession/activity they want to pursue in the future.
After writing a 4 minute script developing a family conversation about what they want for the future, they have began presenting their work to the class. Students had to choose between becoming: a nursery teacher, flight attendant, fashion designer, hairdresser, rock star, football player, carpenter, and mechanic.
After concluding this work, students will be able to answer the following MYP unit question:
How do I see myself in twenty years’ time from now, considering MY present expectations and dreams?
Here is some footage and some pictures of what students have presented.
