To demonstrate Ex.b encourage Ss to ask you questions about your circle. Elicit “How long have you…?” Put Ss in PW and ask them to choose 1 of their partner’s circles and him/ her about the information in it. Don’t forget to set time limits. Monitor and take notes of any errors. Take some general FB and if you have time do some delayed error correction at the end.
