    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We dictated the NyQuil advertisement (nighttime sniffling, sneezing, coughing,…) – there were TONS of good and hard words to spell. We did a quick round robin with nyquil, and a word search of a visual advertisement. We then quickly invited folks to come pika watch with us on Friday!

    Time of Class: 2:00 PM
    MC: DanielGoofyProfessor
    DJ: ShelleySincereLearner
    Assistants/Shadowers/Auditioner:
    Module: Powers of Congress – Impeachment
    How Many Learners: 14
    Materials Status (loyalty cards, alphabet sheets, etc): Made more copies of ABC sheet and self-eval sheet. There wasn’t a copy of the attendance sheet, so I was not able to make copies of that one.

    Self Evaluation

    Preparation: Forgot to Show Up (1) vs. Every Hair In Place (10) = 7
    Technique: Completely Incompetent (1) vs. Flawless Delivery (10) = 7
    Engagement: Snoring Loudly (1) vs. Absolutely Riveted (10) = 7
    Connection: Open Hostility (1) vs. Kumbayah (10) = 6
    Poise: Charlie Brown (1) vs. Prince (10) = 7
    Reflection: “It was ok.” (1) vs. Life-changing Epiphany (10) = 7

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Today we discussed Congress’s impeachment inquiry. The lesson included vocabulary related to impeachment and a fun listening activity. Students were mostly engaged and enthusiastic. There was a wide spread in learner levels, but overall the class moved swiftly and there weren’t super long periods of advanced students waiting for beginner students. The listening activity incorporated some TPR, which was a great way to break up today’s writing and give learners a change of pace. We had some tech trouble, but MC Daniel kept things moving smoothly.

    Self Evaluation

    Preparation: Forgot to Show Up (1) vs. Every Hair In Place (10) = 8
    Technique: Completely Incompetent (1) vs. Flawless Delivery (10) = 4
    Engagement: Snoring Loudly (1) vs. Absolutely Riveted (10) = 6

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Dictation, then Listening, Writing, and Speaking exercises around the language and steps of impeachment were challenging for the group, but providing key vocabulary first (impeachment, whistleblower, etc.) helped. Great energy and enthusiasm around Dictation Progress with Greetings and Replies. Learners also had a chance to provide common phrases from their native languages. Everyone had fun!

    Lesson Title: Cleaning up around the house
    Date of Class: Oct 09, 2019
    Time of Class: 2:00 PM

    Preparation: Forgot to Show Up (1) vs. Every Hair In Place (10) = 7
    Technique: Completely Incompetent (1) vs. Flawless Delivery (10) = 7
    Engagement: Snoring Loudly (1) vs. Absolutely Riveted (10) = 8

    Poise: Charlie Brown (1) vs. Prince (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): We did a listen and point on an info sheet with natural cleaning recipes. Then we did some round robins with white vinegar and baking soda. Then we did a bunch of say and do around cleaning the house – polish the furniture, fold the laundry, sweep the floor, vacuum the carpet, change the lightbulb, clean the windows. That was a fun and really active part of the class. We finished with a couple of dictation sentences and had people saying them one at a time as fast as they can, which caused lots of laughter. Fun class! Amber shadowed us from the carpenter’s union, and she is very motivated to introduce our learners to the apprenticeship opportunities. I would love to work with her to create a lesson around it, and maybe do a field trip to the training center???
