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

  • We talked how we feel at the end of the semester. Since everything happened online at home, there is not a huge difference compared to pre-COVID time when students used to move back to their hometown etc.  
  • We talked a bit about Hawaiian Thanksgiving food 
  • Kanji guessing game was fun, and they had very good questions such as when these vegetables were introduced to Japan and how their kanji were decided like that. 
  • One student was sharing her knowledge about how Taiwanese use the same kanji for the same fruits and how a kanji was chosen for a certain fruit because of the meaning of kanji (蕃) 
  • We guessed some strange and rare family names and some super complicated kanji as well. 
  • We had a pretty fun time. They used everything they know to guess the kanji, such as a documentary film about fish that they watched the other day, the knowledge of Taiwanese usage of kanji, etc. 

How could this class be improved/ modified? 

  • There are lots of kanji. Some are easy to guess, and others are just impossible to guess. We can do a lot about this.

JP F20 INT/ADV: Haiku

Language Resident/Assistant Name:  

Kozue Matsumoto 

Day and Date:  

Monday October 5, 2020   

Language and Level (intermediate or advanced class):  

Intermediate / Advanced

Class theme/topics discussed:  

  • Haiku 

Goal of the class:  

  • Learn about Haiku 
  • Create haiku and kigo 

How did you structure the class?  

  1. Good news (5min) *We share positive stories at the beginning of each class.
  1. Today’s plan and watch a video: https://youtu.be/BNyPE93fXh8  (10 min) 
  1. Example of “kigo” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_kigo#Autumn:_8_August_%E2%80%93_6_November (5 min) 
  1. Break out room (2-3people) (25 min)  
    1. How we appreciate season? Any new “kigo” that we can create that’s specific to American seasonal moments? 
    2. What reminds us of seasons? What kind of things do we appreciate in a season? What do we do, see, hear, taste or feel in a season?  
    3. Let’s make a haiku! 
  1. Main room (15 min) 
    1. Share the haiku each group made.  

What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.) 

Class agreement, breakup rooms 

Zoom, Breakout room, emails, YouTube and internet resources.   

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

  • They knew the basics of haiku. The video helped them understand a little deeper about haiku. 
  • “kigo” is an interesting concept. Instead of telling them this as a rule, I let them think about and come up with their own “kigo” in their own environment (American or California or whatever they think of) 
  • I believe it’s a nice activity to reflect how we are related to our environment, such as nature or seasonal events.  
  • This also turned into finding a little nice or memorable moment in their daily life relating to a season 
  • They enjoyed thinking of “kigo” and they explained how seasonal a certain word is to me, as I’m not quite familiar to American seasonal practice.  
  • They enjoyed making haiku, too, and they are using some techniques such as ji-amari (extra letter) or taigen-dome (ending a phrase with a noun)   
  • I also had them type their poem into the chat so I can make sure I know what they did and also I can save it. 
  • This was also finding a little nice or memorable moment in their daily life 

How could this class be improved/ modified? 

  • We focused on fall as it’s fall now, but we can do this any seasons 
  • We can also do “senryu,” which is like haiku, but you do not need to use “kigo” in it. So this could be a little freer and more hilarious.  

 If you have a more detailed lesson plan, please attach it below (OK to use target language for that).  Please attach any handouts as well.

DE F20 INT/ADV – St. Martin’s Day & Lantern crafting

Language Resident/Assistant Name: Eva Saunders

Day and Date: 11/12/2020

Language and Level (intermediate or advanced class): Intermediate & Advanced

Class theme/topics discussed: St. Martin’s Day

Goal of the class: Learn about German culture and master casual conversation

How did you structure the class?

A) Warm-Up: Have you heard of St. Martins Day or seen lantern-walks before? Why are they happening?

Watch short cartoon about St. Martin:


B) Activity: Make a lantern as is a custom in Germany on 11/11 while listening to songs that are traditionally sung, like  “Ich geh mit meiner Laterne“ and “Laterne, Laterne”.

Here is an example for an easy lantern: http://www.labbe.de/zzzebra/index.asp?themaid=237&titelid=4116
This one is made poking holes, alternatively you can have the students cut out shapes with small scissors and glue tissue paper behind it.

Maybe watch video of actual St. Martin’s procession towards the end, when people are settled in with crafting (you can find some on Youtube).

C) Discussion while crafting or after: What were your favorite Childhood activities this time of year? Is there something similar in your culture?

What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.) Props: Share Screen function in Zoom, Chat, Youtube, Spotify, Course Website as a resource for homework and reference.

I emailed students a few days before with what is needed so they could get the supplies needed for making the lanterns (cardboard box, scissors, thumb tacks, glue, tissue paper, fake candle, etc.).

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

The students very much enjoyed making the lanterns. It is a bit hard to make them multi-task, so they became chattier once they were almost done with their work. It worked well to listen to some traditional songs while they were crafting and showing the videos in the beginning & end.

How could this class be improved/ modified?

I’d leave it as is. And we took a screenshot photo with all our lanterns at the end, which made a fun memory.

If you have a more detailed lesson plan, please attach it below (OK to use target language for that).  Please attach any handouts as well.

Class agreement, breakup rooms 

Zoom, breakout rooms, youtube videos 

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

  • Students were a little tired at the beginning with upcoming exams and all the homework they have 
  • Each breakout room had a different music video. So I told them to describe the video really in detail. 
  • They enjoyed the videos.  
  • We learned some way of describing music, terms such as “traditional,” “contemporary,” and other terms used for traditional clothing.  
  • In breakout rooms, they asked me some words that explain musical moments, things artists are wearing, or the scenery. They used these terms when shearing in the main room. 
  • I first let all the groups explain what they watched. After that is done, I shared my screen and played all three videos at once. They loved it.  
  • Students enjoyed the music, costumes, the techniques of artists, and other details.   
  • This is one of classes students chose as the best.

Advanced:

  • Students enjoyed the music, costumes, the techniques of artists, and other details. 
  • We ended up with talking a lot about Japanese arts and elements in videos. 
  • Students have a little more knowledge about Buddhism in this class, and it made some discussions very interesting. 

How could this class be improved/ modified? 

  • I noticed that students used chat a lot as we all watch the videos together. Probably I can make use of the chat function more effectively with music moment. I don’t know how yet though. Something to keep thinking for the next time.

JP S20 ADV Fashion

Language Resident Name: Miki Saigo

Day and Date: January 28, 2019

Language and Level: Advanced Japanese

Class theme/topics discussed:

  • Fashion

Goal of the class:

  • Discuss preferences and opinions on fashion

How did you structure the class?

  • Greetings and announcements
    – Study Break: Calligraphy Feb. 6th
    – Oldenborg Open House Feb. 13th
  • Activity I: Whose outfit?
    I show students pictures of various outfits. In groups of three, students discuss who/what kind of person would wear them to where and if students themselves would try wearing these outfits. After they discuss in groups, they discuss with the whole class.
  • Activity II: Discussions on fashion
    In groups of three, students discuss the following questions:
    1. What type of outfit do 5C students wear?
    2. What would you wear when you go to:
        – a family gathering for Christmas
        – a friend’s wedding
        – a job interview
    3. Do you take time to pick clothes in the morning? What do you do when you can’t decide?
    4. Do you stick to certain brands? Do you like fast fashion?
    5. Imagine you traveled to a somewhere far away… and you find people there wear completely different from you (e.g. everybody is wearing ルーズソックス!). What would you do?
  • Activity III: Idol group audition
    I mention how idols/groups wear unique fashion and do various types of activities on media (e.g. singing, dancing, cooking, comedy, acting, harvesting…). I divide the students into groups and tell each group to imagine they are going on an audition as an idol group. Using a worksheet, students first ask each other their hobbies, skills and things they want to try in the future. Students list up the keywords and then discuss what they can do as an idol group using their talents. They also decide their group name, goals and theme fashion (draw what they are going to wear on media).
    When they are done, they present their idea to the whole class.

What technology, media or props did you use?

  • PowerPoint slides
  • Pictures from the internet (for the picture cards)
  • Worksheet

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

  • Activity I was visually entertaining. It is open-ended and made students talk, too.
  • Students had fun in Activity III. They were creative and talked spontaneously to share their ideas. It was nice to have them draw their costumes.

How could this class be improved/ modified?

  • I would add a discussion on trend fashion next time. (e.g. What kind of fashion item is popular now/went popular in the past?)

IOWA – Заболела тобой

Лето было пепельно-золотым,
Чувства были сильно помяты.
Нет, не боялась я темноты,
Я была сама виновата…

Что не умела вязать узлы;
В том, что промолчала когда-то.
Только, как лечить эту пустоту?
Знаю, я сама виновата:

Я заболела, я заболела, я заболела тобой.
Я заболела, я заболела, я заболела тобой.

В моих руках жёлтые цветы,
Глаза слезятся от ветра.
Мы не заварим чая в ледяной воде –
Мы две стороны одной монеты.

Айсбергом ты на моём пути.
Остаться, уйти? – Не понятно.
Но как же лечить эту пустоту:
Знаю, я сама виновата…

Я заболела, я заболела, я заболела тобой.
Я заболела, я заболела, я заболела тобой.

Лето было пепельно-золотым
И уже катилось к закату.
Отцвели давно наши сады,
Осень во всём виновата

Я не успела, я не успела понять,
Как заболела тобой
Я не успела, в этом всё дело,
Я заболела тобой…

Я заболела, я заболела, я заболела тобой.
Я заболела, я заболела, я заболела тобой.

DE FA18 INT Art and painters

Conversation Class Lesson Summary

Language Resident Name:

IVAN LUCIC

Day and Date:

Wednesday, 11/28/2018

Language and Level (intermediate or advanced class):

German, Intermediate

Class theme/topics discussed:

Art and painters

Goal of the class:

Get to know the vocabulary regarding art. Be able to describe a picture accordingly.

How did you structure the class?

Activity 1 (5 min): Quiz. First, we started doing a kahoot quiz. I prepared a quiz on famous painters and paintings. The students had to do the quiz on their own. The students got really excited and loved doing that.

Activity 2 (10 min): Interview. I asked the students to interview each other about art and museums. They asked each other how often they went to the museums, which museum they liked the most and which painter they liked the most. After that, we gathered the results in the big group.

Activity 3 (5 min): I told the students to gather as many terms they knew about art, specifically the tools they would need to paint and to draw. The winner got a small gift (candy). After that, we briefly talked about vocabulary regarding art by collecting all the tools you would need to paint and draw.

Activity 4 (10 min): I showed a famous painting of Salvador Dali and we tried to describe the picture as accordingly as possible by using phrases (in the front of the picture, in the back of the picture, etc). I also handed them a help sheet they could use in the next exercise. This exercise should prepare them for the next task.

Activity 5 (30 min): Drawing by hearing. I split the students in groups of three. One student would sit in the front, facing away from the screen. The two other students would look at the screen and try to describe the picture best to their knowledge. The student facing away would draw it. The students had 10 minutes for each picture. Then they would switch so everyone would be in the place of drawing. In the end we would look at all pictures. The one that looked the most similar won (and the group received candy as a reward).

What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)

Whiteboard, pen

PowerPoint presentation (see attached)

Help sheet (attached)

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

The students really enjoyed the quiz! Also, they enjoyed drawing the pictures and explaining that to each other. They also drew really funny pictures!

How could this class be improved/ modified?

It was one of the best classes. I would keep it as it is.

ES F18 ADV Rosalía (Spanish culture and music)

ES-ADV-F18-Rosalía

Conversation Class Lesson Summary

Language Resident Name: José Gómez

Day and Date:

09/18/2018

Language and Level (intermediate or advanced class):

Spanish advanced

Class theme/topics discussed:  

.Goal of the class: To learn and discuss about traditions in Spain.  To discover new music artists in Spain

How did you structure the class?

Activity 1:

Students get a piece of paper with prompts to discuss about their musical taste

They stand up and walk around asking each other

Activity 2:

Students are asked the features that a good artist needs to have. We write those words in the whiteboard

Activity 3:

Students look up the artist Rosalía on Instagram. They describe what they see and what they think of her.

Activity 4:

We brainstorm different elements from the Spanish culture. Students are guided with a powerpoint presentation in order to get them to discuss about semana santa, bullfighting, suburbs…

Activity 5:

Students watch the Malamente music video by Rosalia. They have toidentify the elements we have learnt before. Then we discuss how they arerepresented in the video and figure out the meaning of the video.

Activity 6:

Now that students are more familiar with the artist and the imagery. We discuss about elements that are relevant also in the US. Cultural appropriation and Rosalía.

Activity 7: If there is time, we watch another music video by the same artist that shows similar topics, and discuss the different elements portrayed in it.

What technology, media or props did you use? (Internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)

We used prompts to bring up the topic at the beginning of the class.

We also used a powerpoint presentation to bring the imagery of the artist to the classroom and make it more fun to engage in the topic.

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

This class worked very well with advanced students because they really liked the artist. They could see and discuss elements from the Spanish culture that they were already familiar with, and put them into a different perspective. After this class, this artist became a recurrent topic in class, students would follow her progress and the new material she was releasing. It was a fantastic resource for them to bring Spanish home and keep practicing. 

If you have a more detailed lesson plan, please attach it below (OK to use target language for that).  Please attach any handouts as well.

There is a PowerPoint presentation attached.
