This week I'm having my first year students act out skits about sickness and injuries. I've had a few wonderful deomonstrations but today was the best so far.
A group of girls dressed up using paper props and reinacted a car accident. One girl promptly began acting like she'd broken her neck and was demanding money from the other driver. The other driver refused so they had to call the police. The police woman took the "Injured" girl to the hospital where the doctor said she was "just fine."
Another group of girls had lots of props. One girl came in complaining of having an injury--she'd broken her arm. She even went so far as to shout when the other girl thought to take her by the hand and lead her towards the "doctor". They had drawn pictures of X-rays and even pretended to give her a shot. Amazing. Just when I thought it was over the patient's mother came in dressed in flowery print clothes, fake (paper lips), and crying "MY BABY!!" When the mom found out her daughter was going to be OK she took out her mirror and started putting on her Chanel lipstick. Hilarious!
One group had their patient die...
All in all I'm very impressed with my first year students. =)
