    DJ: BettyFunTeacher
    Assistants/Shadowers/Auditioner:
    Module: Vaccination
    How Many Learners: 4
    Materials Status (loyalty cards, alphabet sheets, etc): A bit short on the loyalty cards and alphabet sheet

    Preparation: Forgot to Show Up (1) vs. Every Hair In Place (10) = 4
    Technique: Completely Incompetent (1) vs. Flawless Delivery (10) = 5
    Engagement: Snoring Loudly (1) vs. Absolutely Riveted (10) = 6

    Total: 31

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Learners were working in groups of two most of the time which works out just fine because in both groups, there’s one higher-level learner helping a lower-level learner. MC was very high-spirited and engaged in periodic chit chat to keep the class in similar high spirit.
