Class theme/topics discussed:
How was Spring Break
How did you pick this theme or topic?
Today was just right after Spring Break, students might be still in vacation on their mind, so I just let them talk what they did during spring vacation.
Class Project- We have to work on Class project for the end of semester. I gave them some options what they want to do for it.
Creating Anime with Xtranormal.com, Video-shooting-1)Onomatopoeia, ２）Introduce something(例えば、各学校について。どんな活動が行われているとか、このビルではどんな科目が勉強できるとか・・お題は後から学生と話しあうつもりで) ３)Interview 4)Cooking 5)Music
How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
I told them we need to decide what we are going to do for class project. 次の時間までに何をしたいか考えてくるように指示。もし他にいいアイディアがあればクラスにもってくるように。
How did students react?
They were so tired today…I knew it because today was right after Spring Break.
Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes, I think so. They tried to focus on the class.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Wold you recommend this activity for a future class?
Why or why not?
Sometimes, just talking is good. Especially, after long Break, it works.
Because class project is required.
