    Preparation: Forgot to Show Up (1) vs. Every Hair In Place (10) = 4
    Technique: Completely Incompetent (1) vs. Flawless Delivery (10) = 4
    Engagement: Snoring Loudly (1) vs. Absolutely Riveted (10) = 6

    Reflection: “It was ok.” (1) vs. Life-changing Epiphany (10) = 6

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Zadok really created energy in class, so learners enjoyed learning. The handouts were based on the real world. As well as he kept learners to be busy with round-robin and that was good. Since learners were busy and kept asking each other, they had no time to get distracted. It helped learners to focus on a lesson.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We dictated sentences about doing work in the green streets, and then filled out an activity log based on the sentences we wrote. We also did a word cloud on green streets. A very cohesive lesson with some good practice filling out unfamiliar forms!

Did a video activity where they needed to put in order the script printed and cut into slips of paper that worked well until her computer died, then we did a dialogue and round-robin questions

Our newcomer from honduras came for the 2nd time and seemed to enjoy it. a new russian speaker came, kind of out of the blue, an au pair, but pretty high level skills. we set up a proficiency plan for the following day. activities themselves useful and interesting

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Lesson was built around a pamphlet on personal actions to keep rivers clean. We did some dictation of sentences from the pamphlet, then listen and point using the pamphlet, then a round robin with pictures illustrating some of the actions from the pamphlet. This was a really cohesive lesson.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We started the class with one student, a second student joined after about half an hour, then the first student had to leave early … so lots of reconfiguring what we were doing as the dynamic changed throughout.

    Lots of time for focused attention as we had two teachers and one or two students at a time.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Only one learner showed up on time but then left thinking the class was cancelled, only to return 15 minutes later. There was a bit of unfamiliarity between the learner and the MC since it’s MC’s first time at this location, but overall, it went well and the session ended with more open-ended discussions in general.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): There were two students in class today both were very very low level. During this class we talked about Portland’s heat advisory for this week and how trees help cool the air. I let the learners try to spell each word once and then wrote it down for them. I felt that one student got frustrated when I wasn’t immediately telling him how to spell it and making him try, but he get better at trying to spell the word once by the end of class. Both students spoke very little English so it was very hard to direct them during class.

Rachel introduced the topics of zones, and then we walked over to a nearby Green Street on Burnside and MLK to see a Green Street adopted by Voz.
