Procedures: the students are supposed to talk about their methods on doing household chores. If the conversation fuel ends up too quickly, talk about the nasty consequences of not doing these things or imagining inventions to maybe eliminate these chores. If your students don’t have any of these responsibilities, ask them how they would like to do these things if they had to. Again: Focus on their ways of expressing actions, not the actions themselves.
PI: if one student can't create anything, give them some ideas, like when doing the dishes, sometimes your clothes get wet, how can we solve this problem? With an apron?
LINK: Well, I have to admit I loved the ideas you guys had, especially listening to music while you do the dishes and dance around! Looks silly, but don't you guys love just being alone and doing what you want?
