Taking turns, students can post here what happened in class and/or what materials we used.
First lesson. Sept. 23: Everybody introduced themselves, which was interesting and interactive! As people made mistakes, I gave them feedback for their List of Mistakes (LoM), introducing in this way one of our methodological resources to work on overcoming fossilized mistakes, and also to learn to listen to ourselves as we speak, so we can fix our mistakes. I also gave some General Info on the school, which will continue next day. I asked students to write a piece for me, about their English (see whiteboard below, left-hand side), including a shared top line with basic information: group, year, name + email.
Second lesson. Sept. 25: It was a beautiful lesson, where we learned a bit more about each other and the world in conversation! Dear students, please post your notes for the diary of this lesson, if you like. I think our highlight was watching this Björk video and listing people for upcoming OPs! (Thanks, María and Carmen! If any of you like, you could post the name and title of the OP) For me as a teacher, Charlotte’s comment on the impact of what I was explaining about evaluation and learning was a gift!
