Attitude to clothing survey (18)
Divide class into two groups - A and B. Then further sub-divide into groups of 3 or 4. Put a list of all the students' names on the board. In groups, Ss a) prepare the questions they will ask for the survey and b) decide which students each member of the group will ask - so that the same people are not questioned twice. Then mill around asking their questions and recording their answers. Finally, back to original groups to give feedback. Optional extra: Make another worksheet with all eight statements and hand it out at the beginning. Ss in pairs predict the answers.
