Class theme/topics discussed:
Evaluation for Conversation Class ( I finished 15 mins earlier than usual to fill out the evaluations)
How did you pick this theme or topic?
うそみたいな本当の話-We did similar things before early in this semester. This time, I divided into 2 groups, and they have to tell their unreliable stories to peer in their group. Then, students need to pick up one person who was going to tell the truth. The rest of others needed to tell a lie. After that students had to tell their stories to other group(they were audience in this time) Another team have to guess who was telling the truth.
How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
How did students react?
They looked tired, but they reacted very well. Some students were out of focus today…
Did they engage with each other and you?
I think so.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
Why or why not?
This time, they looked so tired to take a class. ( I think it was because of final exams or writing paper…) But, they engaged with each other, and they asked me a lot of questions.
