Class theme/topics discussed:
About Japanese athletic meet
-Quiz about the event
-Practicing Japanese radio gymnastics
-Game: fruit basket
How did you pick this theme or topic?
I wanted students to know and enjoy one of Japanese seasonal events.
How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
How did students react?
-Quiz was very difficult for students. I should have considered their level more.
Did they engage with each other and you?
Not so much. The task was too difficult to answer some questions.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
Yes, but it was difficult for students to discuss about the topic in detail.
Why or why not?
They need more vocabulary for open discussion. I have to care their skill of Japanese more.
