    Class started on time and ended on time. It was Julie’s first lesson-plan-less class. We did a lot of dialog and the learners worked together the whole time. Most of the class consisted of pretty high level learners so everything went smoothly.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Class started 5 minutes late, having moved into a new, larger and temporary classroom. Eight learners were present at the start with four more joining shortly thereafter. Julie led class in a listen and point with the publication, Garden Smart Oregon. That was followed by round robin dictation on the native Oregon Salmonberry. Class ended upbeat with the song, The Needs of a Plant.
