    Hello! My name is Little Brother, and I’m here helping make things here at PPT easier!

    Here’s your forum post! Please copy and paste this into the PPT Forum!

    Date of Class: Mar 11, 2020
    Time of Class: 2:30 PM
    MC: BrookeCompassionateEducator
    DJ: MC Entered attendance, no DJ
    Assistants/Shadowers/Auditioner:
    Module: Laws/crimes
    How Many Learners: 5
    Materials Status (loyalty cards, alphabet sheets, etc):

    Self Evaluation

    Preparation: Forgot to Show Up (1) vs. Every Hair In Place (10) = 4
    Technique: Completely Incompetent (1) vs. Flawless Delivery (10) = 4
    Engagement: Snoring Loudly (1) vs. Absolutely Riveted (10) = 4
    Connection: Open Hostility (1) vs. Kumbayah (10) = 3
    Poise: Charlie Brown (1) vs. Prince (10) = 3
    Reflection: “It was ok.” (1) vs. Life-changing Epiphany (10) = 3

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Well today was a bit tough with all the coronavirus news and such. Rick came to the decision that we would hold off on the classes until further notice. Hopefully we will be back by end of April but we just won’t know until things start to get back to ‘normal’. So we talked a lot about the virus and how it’s affecting everyone. The ladies are very well informed so I didn’t need to tell them much that they didn’t know. We touched a little on the topic of the day related to our theme of Law and order but mostly just reviewed from last week- the mood was low and everyone was just a bit off. Very weird feeling but I think a break will be good and hopefully we’ll be back together soon!

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Great class, great group! This session is rockin it with the full house! We had another fun one exploring language related to traffic violations and talking with the police. We reviewed a bit from last week and practiced some new dialogues related to the content. We did a listening/cloze activity which we then practiced pronunciation with. They all did so good! Makes me happy to see improvement :) Last we work with some grammar via a fun little game surrounding transportation and travel. They had to fill in the blanks with the proper verb- choices were go, take, ride, drive and they also had to use the right tense. It was a little tricky but they also did great on this one! Good times :)

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Super fun class today about traffic violations (i/e getting/pulled over and talking to the police! I found some good materials online and they loved talking about getting their speeding tickets. One learner has been pulled over several times.. yikes! We mostly practiced a few mini dialogues and then brainstormed reasons why you might get pulled over ( I had a few image prompts too that inspired one of the dialogues. Lots of laughter, one learner left saying ‘that was a happy class!’ (she meant fun, by the way ;) We will be going back to this topic next week for sure

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Well it wasn’t really a class perse, since one learner just came at the very end to say hi and give me some bread (this is kinda her thing ;). But she came and we chatted a bit so although I had a great class prepared, we didn’t use that material.

    Lesson Title: It’s so gorgeous out there today, isn’t it?!

    Reflection: “It was ok.” (1) vs. Life-changing Epiphany (10) = 3

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We began with a short dialogue about the weather (it really was so gorgeous!) They laughed about the word gorgeous, it’s really hard for them to pronounce! We did a round robin with that and then next was a pretty basic pronunciation activity with past tense/ed endings. Also lots of laughter with this- some words were super hard for them! I reminded all that we laugh with, not at, each other :) I then brought out our Deck of Professions! Haven’t used them in a while and I wanted to work with 3rd person pronouns as well as review some culture/nationality stuff so we used the people on the cards to do this activity. First we presented a few folks using a variation of ‘This is an apple’. * They learned some new job vocabulary during this, too! Next each learner was given a character and a little worksheet with a description of the person. They were instructed to ask questions (which we first went over and wrote down) and then to write the answers down, with details they learned. The idea was to work on introductions (this is Alana, she’s from…, she is Russian, etc…) It took a while for them to figure out how to do this activity since it was different than they’re used to but they got it and overall it went pretty well :)

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): I gave 1’s because no learners came to this session today. I did talk with Heather about it as attendance has been very low (either 1 learner, or none). She said she will work on recruitment.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We started with a dialogue /cloze activity about the coronavirus. We talked about this ‘epidemic’ briefly; they were all familiar with it but didn’t seem too worried about it. We reviewed parts of body and did a fun memory activity. Then we talked about common allergies and things we are allergic to. This turned into a good speaking activity. Last we did another cloze activity using various words related to being sick. They learned a good couple new ones and I think this was their favorite activity of the class :)

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): I was a bit thrown off when I learned the male learner who had been coming to the 1st session switched his shift at work so he came to this (2nd) session instead. He is pretty used to one on one conversation and this group is quite different in that sense; we always have at least 3 learners so it’s a lot more group focused. So, I was a little flustered and at first it was definitely tricky to manage… he is at a pretty low level, the ladies are used to an all women group, and the content was a bit challenging for all. It wasn’t a failure but not the best class either. We first did some ice breakers (introductions/name spelling and a little ‘what do you do’ dialogue) which I’m glad I did as I feel like it helped the group dynamic a bit. We did a few activities to explore language related to radon but I think it was just too complex and they had never heard of it. I tried to keep the content simple and engaging but I guess just didn’t plan very well. We learned names of household items, or things in the home, that might be dangerous (humidifier, extension cords, lead paint, etc..) and ended with ‘This is an apple’ which I think was a good choice as it almost always brings laughter- and it did. I will plan for a more mixed group next week :)

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): One learner came very late- she hasn’t been in a while so it was good to have her back even if just for a bit. We didn’t have much time so we just practiced general/basic conversation

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Energy was a bit low today but I did my best to keep the ladies engaged and energized. We reviewed a bit from last class, talked about some common fears and then shared things we are afraid of. We did a memory/minds eye activity and then practiced a short dialogue about a specific phobia called a hypnophobia (the fear of sleep! Glad I don’t have that fear! ;) Lastly we looked a document with the names of several different (some odd) phobias and learned what they mean. That’s a wrap!
