Activity 9.3

Surveying preferences

Getting started
Play Scene R – Taking a break. Ask the students to see how much of the dialogue they can understand, especially in relation to preferences being expressed. Use your copy of the Scene R transcript to lead the questioning.

The students now complete a class survey of food preferences using NZSL. Play Clip 9.2a: What food do you like? and Clip 9.2b: What did you have for breakfast? to sharpen their focus on the particular sentence patterns they are about to use.

Group work
Divide the class into four groups labelled A, B, C, and D. Groups A and B work together, and groups C and D work together.

Groups A and C ask questions and gain responses from the groups they work with that will enable them to fill in their survey forms. Then groups B and D take their turn to follow the same process to complete their forms.

Prepare survey forms based on the model shown below with enough rows for the number of students in your class.





Give the students a time limit to complete this task.

Fingerspelling rehearsal
To revise fingerspelling and to be true to the nature of surveys, where you often have to provide your name, ask the students to fingerspell their name before they respond to the questions about their likes and dislikes.

Have the groups pool their results and display their information in an appropriate format, for example, as a graph. Display the completed graph.

Survey variations
This survey could be varied by having the students follow the same process to find out:

  • what others had for breakfast
  • what others had for lunch
  • the students’ sports preferences.

A decision made on how to present findings based data students gathered could be linked with what they learn in other subjects, for example, mathematics and statistics.
