Spanish translation:representado - interpretado
Explanation:

Significa que el alumno interpreta a un personaje, actuando como tal mientras interactúa con el resto de la clase:

"A group activity that allows students to assume the persona of a character in the literature being read. The student (speaking as if they are the character) answers questions from others in the group, requiring that the student live in the shoes of the selected character.

When: Do the Hot Seat after a portion or all of a text has been read.

Why: The Hot Seat enables the student to become a character in the literature.

How: Divide the class into small groups of 3-5 students. Each student selects a different character to become. In turn, students are given 2 minutes to respond "in character" to questions posed by other members of the group."

agree  Henry Hinds: This is great, this term came up a few days ago and no one could get it right. It's part of the jargon...
