Felt like there was significant pronuncation/articulatory awareness happening. May not turn into immediate fluency change, but it lays the groundwork

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We had a slow start, no one seemed interested in attending class. Around 11:45am one student was interested, so we started around that time. Another student joined around 12pm. I intended for this class to include a walk around the neighborhood to look at trees but no one wanted to do the tour since it was really hot, so I discussed the same topics with pictures of the trees.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): There were two learners for the class. One arrived at 11:45 and another arrived at 12pm after his shift watching the gate. One student was really shy and I felt like it was difficult to get him into the groove of the class.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Continuing to work with a single learner who really needs help with pronunciation, and worked out a pretty good model for them. They start to explain, then I slow them down, and we try to dictate what their saying. Choral response, then they try to say three times well. Then cover up and say it. I feel like they are hitting difficult proununciation much more often.
