Grade 7 murder mystery interrogations

Over the last two weeks, Grade 7 Stage 2 Academic English Programme students have been studying the unit “Murder Mystery” from Oxford’s Pre-Intermediate “Adventures” textbook.

After completing the unit, students wrote their own original scripts of police interrogations, using events and characters from the text.  They employed key vocabulary, such as “suspect,” “evidence”, “motive” and “confession”.  They also showed understanding of the grammatical structures of the unit, including the accurate use of the past progressive tense.

This was a great opportunity for students to use the knowledge gleaned from the unit in a creative way.  They thoroughly enjoyed their role-playing, as did the audience.
