|What's going on in Mr. Solarz' Class?||
Being a greeter is a great job to have and you have to participate in it. If you are in a bad mood don't be frustrated, always try to be happy so they know that you are friendly. Respect all of their ideas and don't be bossy because some time they do mystery Skype's differently . Some times the kids who we mystery Skype haven't done a mystery Skype before, so if they are confused help them not be confused and if they make a mistake in something don't get mad at them, be patient and correct their mistake.
When you are greeting the mystery Skype people you have to introduce yourself first. You also say that you are so happy to be mystery Skyping with them, because it is always fun to do a mystery Skype and it helps them know that we appreciate them giving up their time to do a mystery Skype with us. Then you ask them to introduce themselves because it is polite. When they are done introducing themselves you ask them, "how do you want to play the game? Do you want to play like if you get a question right to get a follow-up question? Or do you want to play like you keep on switching up turns? After the person you are mystery Skyping answers you ask them who wants to go first, usually you let them go first but if you really want to go first you either ask them if you could go first or you rock paper scissors if you don't care who goes first.
Being a greeter is important because if we don't have greeters then we will have no idea who goes first, what their names are, and how we are playing. There might be an confusion over who gets to go first and there might be another confusion about if we are playing with follow up questions or no follow up questions. One other reason why we need greeters is because we would not be able to thank the people who we are mystery Skyping with and that would not be good because they would not know how happy we are to be mystery Skyping with them.
Mystery Skype Jobs
We LOVE doing Mystery Skype's in our classroom. In addition to being responsible for researching questions and answers throughout the experience, we are also assigned one other task. This blog attempts to explain each of those jobs.
