Does anyone have any suggestions for how to use these in a class?

I really think there are many creative ways to use these. Just depends on the level / age / make up / interests of the class.

You might consider one of the following. Hopefully others will chime in with ideas.

1. Guessing. Who am I. Give students a card each. Bring one student to the front of the class and with another set, get them to pick out a card. Others must make questions to guess who they are.....The person who first succeeds or group - goes to the front.

2. Two sets again. Give students a card each. They must walk around the room trying to find their match (without showing). If they find a match, they link arms and try to find others. (just distribute less cards/matches depending on the numbers).

3. Interviews. Use the role play card as the start of an interview. Students can make up answers to further questions - playing the role of that person. Same thing with dialogues.

4. Writing. Use that persona to write about something (teacher decides - can be about routine, feelings of other family members etc...).

5. A play. In groups students perform a play given those characters or write a comic book story.

Here are some "GI Joe" role play cards. Not sure how you might use them but they could be useful for role playing activities with students. 


Also, these cards go with the videos on this page - You On You contest videos. Students listen and fill out the cards about the contestants.


Here are some great tole play cards16 Role plays for a class of 32 students.  Cut out in strips and provide to pairs of students who will read the cards and do the role play. 

After get the students to re-enact the role play for the class. Lots of great "emergent" language!
