Record and Playback exemplar 3: talk show host

You’ll probably recognise this Record & Playback film from Step 4.3. In this example the brief given to the pupils was to ‘interview a character of your choice in the style of a television chat show’ from the book they had been studying in class, There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom.

This is a great way of assessing what pupils have learnt from a text as well as deepening their knowledge of a particular character. It ensures that pupils undertake indepth research and have a fun and engaging activity to aim for at the end of their work.

The final results can be shown and assessed by the class as well as be used as revision tools and aids for future work.
