As my 15 minute micro-teach takes shape the idea of having students draw a plate of food to show what they had for breakfast is turning problematic when I give it a go in practice.
My 24 year old daughter things its childish (I don't. I think wax crayons and felt-tip pens are comforting and fun reminders of nursery school).
The issue in practice is the time I give to people within the 15 minutes.
This is not the test of their ability to do a drawing of a piece of bacon (fairly easy) or baked beans (a little more tricky) or porridge (advanced to impossible).
It is simply to create a talking point. The solution therefore is that they use a black felt-tip pen only to draw and outline and then write what it is.
I can say they'd have a chance to colour it in after the class, or for homework
It might be 10 years since I ran something like this; that was a 'creativity, innovation and change' workshop. I had what amounted to a swim coach's lesson plan with strict timings of when we should be moving through the tasks.
With only 15 minutes I'll be doing the same on Thursday.
I will even script it and record a video (we may not be able to go into an evening session at college).
