School Situation Cards
Place the cards in 2 piles face down – store & situations. Have the student pick one card from each pile, applying the situation to the room and answering.
These situations are the most basic and result in a straightforward answer.
Pages discussing “Introducing Yourself and Starting Conversation”, “Asking & Answering Questions”, and “Body Language”. Includes 6 open-ended or multiple-choice questions per page.
Pick Your Adventure Pragmatics Book
Includes: School map, 6 pages with 4 corresponding scenarios on each page.
The student makes 3 choices:
1. Choose a school location
2. Choose if it’s a new school or your same school
3. Choose if they have their teacher or a substitute
There are 24 possible options to choose from. Each one has a separate scenario.
Social Experience Web Maps
Includes: “Going on a field trip to the zoo” and “You have a presentation in class”
Each page shows a web map starting from the beginning of the experience to the end, with various social situations that arise.

Works great for group discussions.
