Partner Introductions

A first-day assignment

  • First, find someone you don’t know (very well). Sit next to each other.
  • Next, find out as much information as you can about each other in a few minutes. Take notes.
  • Finally, introduce your partner to the rest of the class. (Don’t read sentences!)


  • Smile!
  • Make eye contact.
  • Start with “small talk” (the weather, this classroom, etc.)
  • Move on to easy questions, such as:
    • When you were a kid, what movie did you watch a lot?
    • Morning person or night owl?
    • Cats or dogs?
    • What’s the best trip you’ve ever taken?
    • If you could only eat at one restaurant for the rest of your life, which would it be?
    • And so on…
