Main Activity

  1. Here is a survey sheet. Read it, and find about anything that’s not clear
    Class survey: A healthy life
    Find a partner and ask the questions in the survey. Give a score for the answer.
    Score 3 for or usually.
    Score 2 for sometimes or offer
    Score 1 for rarely or never
  2. Find a partner, interview each other, and score your partner’s answers. 1, 2, or 3 for each question. Any answer you give is going to be repeated to a group later, you don’t need to answer a question if you don’t want to.
  3. When everyone has finished the interviews, your teacher will tell you to make groups of between five and eight people.
  4. Report to your group about your partner’s answers.
  5. On a separate piece of paper, find the total for each question; add up all the scores for question 1 to find its group total, then for question 2, and so on.
  6. Look at the questions with the higher scores, and those for the lower scores. You will discuss; Why are the high scores high. Why are the low scores low?, How can we make the low scores higher?
  7. You have to listen to the different results and ideas. Give the comments.

Follow up

  • Your teacher will suggest ways of comparing the scores of different groups of people to find any interesting differences. Give your teacher other suggestions
  • Choose one way of comparing, then find five people of each type and copy the interview results for those people from the first half of the lesson.
  • Write a report in class for homework describing your result.
