Teleconferencing Scenarios

This section provides two conflict scenarios without any solution. The students will need to have seen these scenarios before they teleconference because there will be no time to view them during the teleconferencing. These scenarios will be the basis of conversation during the teleconference.

The first teleconference will be conducted in English. The students will be talking about "The New Kid." A new girl wants to make new friends but is confronted with girls who do not accept her.

The students from Mexico will ask key questions in English to the American students. The American students will respond in English.

The students from Canada will ask key questions in English to the American students. The American students will respond in English.

The key questions are:

1. What is the problem?

2. Who are the bullies?

3. How do the bullies feel?

4. Who is the victim?

5. How does the victim feel?

6. What is the solution to the problem?

The second scenario is for the second day of teleconferencing. The students will be talking about "Cafeteria Woes." One boy trips another; the boy with the lunch tray drops everything. During this teleconferencing exchange, the American students will speak in French and ask the key questions to the Canadian students. The Canadian students will respond in French.

When it is the Mexican and American students turn to teleconference for the second time, the American students will ask the questions in Spanish and the Mexican children will answer in Spanish. The questions for both days are the same.

Good luck to all!
