Hello everyone!!

Since last Friday there were no classes, I wanted to remind you that in two weeks we'll be having the First Term Test. So, it would be a good idea to start studying.... thus, on Friday you can ask me any questions you have...

Seventh class

Hi everyone!

On Friday we had a new class, during which we discussed Whole Language in depth. Afterwards, students worked individually or in pairs (as they preferred) on the questionnaire on CLT. We only got to discuss the first question, the one on the backgroud of CLT. We mentioned the advantages of making your own timeline, marking with one colour methods/approaches and with another important events in the realms of politics, or economics or any other that has any relevance. This will complement the detailed study of each method in isolation.

For next class (June 27th, since the 20th is a holiday) you have to complete the questionnaire on chapter 14 (not to hand in: to be discussed in class). You also have to read chapter 15 on the Natural Approach and print the questionnaire on it.

It is important to highlight that last Friday I insisted on the importance of respecting deadlines for the homework. From now on, students who do not meet deadlines will no longer have the option to promote without a final exam.

If you have any doubts, do not hesitate to contact me.

Sixth class


Yesterday we had our sixth class. Students got in groups according to the groups for the World Cup and then they worked on the questionnaire on Whole Language. They also worked on a five-to-ten-sentence long summary of the chapter. We did not finish sharing the results because a few concerns triggered a reflection on general topics related to teachers and to academic life. So,  we'll finish next Friday.

For next Friday you have to correct the quizzes (this was homework for yesterday but most people didn't do it so I'm giving you another chance) and send me the code again. Also, you have to read chapter 14 on CLT and print the questionnaire you'll find in one of the pages of this blog.
