THE AGATHA CHRISTIE EXPERIENCE: STYLES

 In Emotional Intelligence in ESL classrooms

Based on Gamification, SEL and 21st century skills the proposal today is a Breakout Educational Experience for upper-intermediate students, as a follow-up class activity to  extensive reading comprehension tasks. Ideally played in small groups of four participants (some info on «escape rooms» / «breakout educational» activities here). Please note there are no locked rooms in this activity but boxes with padlocks for students to unlock.
