Target Audience

This activity is part of the Workforce Education Learning Activities Bank, an interactive resource of work-related basic skills lessons for use by instructors in the workplace or in traditional adult education programs and by adult learners. All activities within the bank are aligned with the appropriate Secretary’s Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS), Equipped for the Future (EFF), and GED skills and standards. Realtor Role-Play takes place in the context of a visit from a local realtor. Adult learners play the role of realtors with other classmates as the prospective home buyers. The “realtors” determine questions to ask the prospective home buyer so that they can help the “home buyers” find the home best suited to their needs and wants. “Realtors” will use appropriate communication skills to clarify the information with the “clients.”
