    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Tonight was Cam’s dress rehearsal at a new site, HB Lee Middle School in Gresham, a SUN school with lots going on. This class was a great experience in every way! We started out with 3 learners, knowing in advance that a parent meeting would bring in additional learners when it got out. That transition to incorporate a whole group worked ok, since we had just done the “Today’s lesson” dictation. We went back to yell and spell, then continued with the dictation. This group of all women had good rapport and the level of interaction and assistance they gave each other was wonderful. The activity transitions were smooth and Cam’s energy was great! The “Listen and Do” included ‘sing’ and ‘laugh’, which brought happy energy – and real laughter to the lesson. In addition to “Yell and Spell Your Mom”, Cam added a mixer, “Meet my mom”, which got everyone out of their chairs and talking to a variety of learners. It was simple and fun – “Hi Colleen, what’s your mom’s name?”
    This class really showcased the P-P-T model!

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):

    Tonight’s group included half the learners from last week and a half-dozen new learners, both men and women, compared to last week’s “ladies night”. Although the class didn’t flow quite as smoothly because the learners arrived in waves, the energy was good throughout. Two men had a much higher level of English than the rest of the group and were very relaxed and happy to help others. Continuing on the Mother’s Day theme, Cam found a short video clip about the history of Mother’s Day, which provided the content for dictation. It worked well to repeat some of last weeks’ activities, since half the group was new and the repetition of saying/spelling their mom’s name was good practice. All in all, a good class with engaged learners!

    -Alphabet listen and point
    -Yell and spell
    -Dictation: The title of today’s lesson is the racist history of Portland
    -Round Robin: model following dialogue around room
    Cam: “Hi Diana”
    Diana: “Hi Cam”
    Cam: “Is Portland a progressive city?”
    Diana: “Yes, but it has a racist history.”
    -This is a flyer: model around room
    -Read aloud and Here it is with Portland Stands United Against Hate flyer
    -Dictation:
    “Today, Portland is known as a progressive city.
    However, Portland is the whitest city in America.
    State laws made it harder for people of color to move there.
    Rising housing costs forced the black community to move away from the city.
    White people moved into these neighborhoods.
    This process is called gentrification.”
    -Activist Mixer: learners walk around the room and model the following dialogue with other learners:
    Cam: “Hi Diana!”
    Diana: “Hi Cam!”
    Cam: “Do you support immigrants in Portland?”
    Diana: “Yes, I do.”
    Cam: “Would you like to come to the rally on Sunday?”
    Diana: “Yes, I would!”
    -DIY rally flyers: learners made their own flyers and wrote the title, date, time, location, and address of the Portland Stands Against Hate event

    No new learners. Most are food pantry clients. Good rapport forming between learners. Higher-level learners were spread evenly (in terms of seating) to help other lower-level learners. A native English speaking high school student (RMS food pantry volunteer) acted as my assistant/DJ and expressed interest in continuing to come help out each week
