What worked well in this class? What did not work?

Nothing special

Lesson 5.2

Worked well

I got several positive feedbacks.

“I really enjoyed listening to everyone’s presentations and learning new vocabulary/phrases associated with the topics. ”

“I really enjoyed listening to everyone’s presentations.”

“I loved thinking about my roots and look forward to hearing other people’s.”

Did not work

“中級会話の方が私に当てるかなと思いますが I might be fit in intermediate class.”

How could this class be improved/ modified?

There was a student, expressing she was kind of overwhelmed by other students’ fluency in Japanese. Most of the students really love giving presentations, but maybe I have to choose easier topics for this student so that she can feel safe.

On the 16th, students were very excited and passionate on giving presentation about their heritage languages, so there were several students still not be able to finish their presentations.

They will give one on next Tuesday. (21st Sept 2021)
