    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): MC led the class through activities (dictation, round robin, this is a, listen & point) relating to measles. The learners were eagerly using their phones to look up terms like measles, breathing tubes, outbreak and appeared engaged. There were a few times when words in the dictations appeared difficult for the learners so the MC would find someone who had written it correctly and have them write it on the board. One new learner showed up partway through class.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): The alphabets were organized well, so learners got challenging with them. The class was full of energy and engagement because of Melissa. She kept giving useful information to learners. Moreover, she also applied TPR activity. As a result, learners moved around in a class, so they would be bored.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): A happy coincidence that today’s class was on the day of the teachers’ walkout!

    We talked about the Portland Public School teachers’ walkout, labor unions, and both teachers and students practiced “walking out” of the class!

    We used an audio clip from an OPB news story about the teachers’ labor concerns, and having students raise their hands whenever they heard the word “union” was a great attention trick!

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We started the class around 6pm with only 4 students and 3 facilitators, but as the class carried on, we ended up with 7 students. We dictated sentences about labor unions and VOZ in particular. We did a round robin with the question “Do you know what a labor union is?” We dictated sentences about the Legacy planting project BES did with VOZ. We did listen and point with a sheet of The Benefits of Trees. For the last activity I had 3 paragraphs with 7 fill in the blank word slots. The 3 paragraphs was transcribed from the KATU video about the project. Most of the students wrote all 7 words (trees, thirty, grow, stormwater, nature, stress, workers)!

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Rachel had a family emergency but emailed Daniel the lesson plan ahead of time. Only four learners this week so a smaller than usual group for Midland – an opportunity to be a bit more informal and provide some more one-on-one attention where needed.

    The lesson plan was about State Parks near Portland and we learned lots and lots about State Parks!
