    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): I wasn’t super happy with this class. It ended up being a big(ger) class with a new student, and I had planned to try some new activities that I hadn’t done before, so it was a challenge since I wasn’t quite sure what I was doing and also had no one to model with. I tried to do a tpr activity but it didn’t go quite as I hoped. I did some questions and answers about team sports in a round robin, which worked well, and then we listened to a Zumba video and wrote out the text. I meant to go through the steps we wrote out but we ran out of time, so it was more writing than I hoped.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Began by doing a document search on an article summarizing the events that took place in Charlottesville last week. Then introduced some pictures connected with a verb, had them write it down, practiced the pronunciation, and had them recall it. Then I dictated some sentences describing the photos and had them identify with what photo each sentence went with (connected to the actions introduced for the photo). Had a little after class chat in more detail about the situation.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific):
    Zadok led the class through a lesson on the Vaux’s Swifts. We started with the alphabet identification activity, the spelling and repeating of the class members’ names. Students were then instructed to write down the title of the lesson. Then Zadok handed out a informational sheet on the Vaux’s Swifts and students were given phrases to identify. Each of the assistants and the DJ contributed to the activity. After this activity we watched a video on the birds, after which Zadok instructed the students to write down information regarding the video. The last activity was Q&A. This was particularly effective as students provided alternative answers, all of which were written down.

Then we played “Pit”for the remainder of class.
