Class theme/topics discussed:
1. Edit the project
Two of my students edited the video for the project. Today was the final editing.
2. Shopping trip to the Village and make a thank you card
Other students always do different stuff while two of them were editing.
To buy “thank you card” and chocolates for the bake sale, I took students to the village and then let them to write a nice message to professors of Japanese who helped the bake sale.
How did you pick this theme or topic?
Editing was needed for the project.
My students asked me to go to village to buy cards and chocolates so that they want to say thanks to prof. Miyake and Prof. Udagawa.
How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
Cards, Group discussion
How did students react?
Students loved to write a message. So sweet!!
Editors just focused on editing the video and its music.
Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes, they did.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Please attach a copy.
Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
Why or why not?
Editing is needed for the project.
Making a message card is important to keep good relationship. However, students do not learn the specific expressions for cards in the class. It is great oppotunity for them to learn expressions through making a thank you cards.
