    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): This class was designated to completing a survey (the “difficult” one) related to TriMet. There were 4 new learners. At times it felt like a slog to get through the survey but the learners were rather focused and engaged (with some new folks using translate features on their phone). Feedback specific to the survey will soon follow.

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

    Rachel got sick so I stepped in as MC. The class kept growing little by little and so around 6:05 I asked the front desk if we could switch out to the large classroom since it was empty. We all went next door and rearranged their classroom. Had a total of 27 learners, 2 long table in the room.

    – Did alphabet sheets
    – Did yell & spell names
    – This is a bioswale. Passed around two pictures of a bioswale.
    Dictated: A bioswale helps collect stormwater and filters the water
    You can recycle bottles, paper, metal, and glass.
    Recycling helps to reduce pollution in our rivers.
    Listen & point: a sheet of recyclable vs non recyclable items
    This is a: (passed around) water bottle, box, spoon, fork, napkin
    Dictated: Napkins, paper towels, and coffee cups can’t be recycled

    Told students there was an optional survey from the library

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Rachel led the class with a lesson about holiday shopping and trees that incorporated elements of her work within environmental services. She made a document for listen and point about living holiday trees. Other elements included dictation and round robin dialogues. Learners seemed engaged and challenged by spelling less familiar words within the dictation like “excessive” and “environment.”
