How did you structure the class?
Activity1 (5 min): Warm-up
They talk about hobbies.
Activity2 (10 min): Brainstorming
We brainstorm what we should / want to know when we travel.
Activity3 (15 min): Making Presentation
Each student makes a presentation about their hometown. I also make a presentation about my hometown.
Activity4 (30 min): Presentation
Each student presents using the power point. I go first as an example. After one presentation, each one of the student asks a question.
What worked well in this class? What did not work?
It worked well but we didn’t have enough time to finish all the presentations. So, we kept some of them for next class.
How could this class be improved/ modified?
I would do some pre-activities before making and doing presentations (I don’t come up with a good one though). I would get students to use the whole this class to make a presentation ready and get them to do a presentation in the following class.
