    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Qrysi led us in a wonderful class re; The Citizenship Test. She mixed it up with both dictation and dialogue, we moved our bodies and covered a great amount of important information on the test such as famous people, branches of the U.S. government as well as states that border both Mexico and Canada. Despite the heat and change of location on the St. Andrews campus, we had a very lively class and everyone enjoyed themselves. The only barrier being that the table set up doesn’t leave much room for flexibility in movement, but everyone worked together wonderfully as always.

    What happened: There was difficulty accessing the classroom, heat was rather oppressive, multiple learners were late, and class was interrupted by explanation of a MACG meeting taking place at the same time. Ultimately, a number of learners chose to attend this meeting halfway through. DESPITE ALL OF THIS, Santiago led a very dynamic class which engaged learners in creative techniques which got them working hard and challenging themselves. A favorite activity was utilizing various tools – naming them and exchanging them. A simple activity, which was met with much enthusiasm.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): What a pleasure to work with Ramin this evening! I appreciate his ability to keep the momentum and pacing up, while also making sure to engage individually with each learner. I also appreciate the way his experience, or perhaps just plain ‘ol talent, affords him the ability to focus not so much on the content but on the execution of each activity. Our learners were engaged, in spite of the heat, including 1 big kid and 1 little who was such a trooper! Great class
    Also- please note that the attendance for this class has 2 incomplete learner id #’s. I forgot to get the surnames of 2 newer learners. It is my hope that perhaps with what I have provided, someone may be able to complete them through the process of elimination??

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We talked a lot about the difference between day, evening, and night shift, and the general structure of a shift in the United States (two fifteen minute breaks and a lunch break). We did a round robin with flashcards that Keli made that listed an occupation as well a shift, practicing how to ask about someone’s job and their shift and how to respond. We also did a round robin where we asked each other what our first jobs were and how old we were when we started working. Keli made a sample staff calendar, and the learners did a document search where they’d have to find the shift that an employee was working on a particular day. Halfway through the class, Keli also had the learners stand up and act out commands using TPR, which I thought was a great way to bring up the energy in class. Keli kept everyone engaged and laughing throughout the class.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like:
    Erin’s lesson plan provided multiple opportunities for learners to practice practical phrases such as “Can you cover my shift on Friday?” An exercise using common work language kept the group engaged and connected to each other. Erin’s ‘touch and do’ included a very popular ‘high 5″ move which created many smiles. Despite being a relatively new MC, Erin was commended for her well crafted alphabet presentation.

    This was such a fun class! I was thankful that Fernando requested to shadow today. He was very engaged with the learners throughout the class. Our topic was staying cool, so I thought it would be fun to learn vocabulary about going to the pool! I wore a pineapple button down shirt, lemon print shorts, and flip flops to try to set the fun tone of the class. I also brought a tote bag with things that I would bring to the pool – a swimsuit, sunglasses, sunscreen, a towel, and flip flops, and the learners practiced talking about the things they are bringing to the pool by pulling them out of the bag and talking about them. We also practiced some dialogues about how when it’s hot out, going to the pool is a fun way to stay cool. Our last activity was making flashcards – I had a set of pool-related pictures and based on our dialogues, the learners already knew some of the vocabulary, so they could fill them in. For the others, we wrote the vocabulary under the pictures. At the end of class, I pointed to pictures on a blank set, and the learners had to repeat the vocabulary words. Everyone was laughing and having fun throughout the class, and I had a blast as well!

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Lizzy was having an official observation by Ramin. I found it to be a very supportive experience; Ramin’s few interventions where gentle and not at all intrusive. It was a small class, but Lizzy kept our activities varied so that learners felt engaged and motivated. Fernando was our shadower and brought some fantastic energy to the class. Excellent job as usual, Lizzy!

    Claire text me running late with traffic. Rocky start to listen and point, though I tried to start at the drop of 6 pm. Listen and point about 6:10 to 6:40. Then yell and spell. Then calling of the lesson. Then dictation about how pharmacies, prescriptions, and over-the-counter medications work. Then this is an apple with prescription and non prescription bottles that Claire and I had brought from home. A learner pointed out that it is important to take Vitamin D in Oregon (which I have a prescription for) because we receive very little solar radiation. All but one learner were in the 80th percentile of engagement, in my opinion. Connection was even higher, in my opinion, like in the 85th percentile. I had lots of little side banter with Claire and various learners, and the learners were having great banter between then. The learners told lots of jokes about me, and there was a lot of laughing for that and many many other reasons. The other learner was very dissatisfied with the length of the names plus adjectives in This Is an Apple and length of the words during the dictation. A shadower arrived 15 early (before Claire was there), when I was the only person there, but felt sick and left before Claire or any learners arrived.

    I am very happy that this group is starting to show up early and being ready to English at 6 pm !

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Prior to class, the roles of shadowers and assistants were discussed and a focus was emphasezed -encouraging learners to learn from each other. Gaston engaged the group from the very beginning by a well-crafted alphabet. Using dictated words from a Labor Day word cloud, Gaston had the learners create their own Bingo cards which they later played with M&Ms. This novel activity brought the energy level in the class way up and kept everyone thoroughly engaged.
