    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):
    We started with talking about gift buying and practiced questions like ‘Have you finished all of your shopping yet?” via dictation and dialogue. We spent quite a bit of time on this and then did some focused pronunciation with L/R minimal pairs. For the last 20 minutes or so, we played a holiday themed game of memory- it was super fun!

    Pretty similar to the prior class, we started talked about gift buying and practiced questions like ‘Have you finished all of your shopping yet?” via dictation and dialogue. We spent then did some focused pronunciation with L/R and Sh/Ch minimal pairs. Heather came in to talk about the schedule for the next session (starts January 9th) and then we played the holiday themed game of memory – they also really loved it! Great last class before the break :)

    Given that the shutdown is such a huge topic right now, and our learners may be potentially affected by it if it continues, I decided it would be a great topic to start the term off with. Just 1 learner came and as it was just her and I, she asked if we could practice conversation. So, that’s what we did! In a structured way of course :)

    In this group we actually did talk about the shutdown. First, we just did dictation with a short paragraph about the topic- learners wrote it down and then practiced speaking/pronunciation. We asked eachother via round robin ‘Are you or anyone you know currently affected by the shutdown’? Then we did a cloze activity that went into the details of why this is occurring. With visuals, we learned about government services currently affected and who might be greatly affected if the shutdown continues. We ended with a word scramble activity with vocabulary learned throughout the class. It seemed as though learners were very interested in the topic, and I wasn’t surprised that they all knew at least a little bit about it prior to the class.

    Great class!! I inititally wanted to prepare a 4 week module on mental health but then I decided to first do sort of ‘At the Doctor; part 2’ where we talk about the many different kinds of doctors (specialists) and the reasons we would go to see them, etc…
    We started with a picture story where I had them describe the story as a group. I had never done this and will definitely be doing it again, with a bit more structure. It was sort of a warm up to get them thinking about the topic, and was so relevant because the guy in the picture couldn’t speak English very well and therefore was confused upon leaving the Dr. office. They all could relate and we talked a bit about this. They all now get translators in their doctor appointments but they said even then, sometimes they leave with some uncertainty. We practiced a few short dialogues via round robin and then brainstormed ‘reasons to go to a doctor’ which transitioned so nicely into talking about the different specialist doctors. We learned the names for optomotrist, cardiologist, gyno, dermatologist, etc.. via images. The pronunciation of most of the words was really hard for them so we practiced a lot with that. We ended with a fun listen/find with the images where I said the generic/general name of the doctor (skin doctor, eye doc, brain doc, etc..) and they had to point and then say the technical name for each. Then I described my symptom or issue I was having and they had to tell me which doctor I should go see. So fun!
