The activities include: (1) a game for determining the appropriate referent for an adjective; (2) a paired-student activity in which students match individuals with characteristics; (3) a board game, with cue cards and answer cards provided; (4) a game in which students find a classmate who has a specific characteristic; (5) a personal oral interview exercise; and (6) a game for discovering shared interests. A list of additional resources for oral activities appropriate to the high school classroom is appended. (MSE)
