Quick update on today’s lesson: I decided to go backwards a unit because it just seemed too crazy to go forward.
I’ve decided that one of my weaknesses is teaching vocabulary. I mean, I can do it, but I never really get the intangible sense or the tangible proof that they’ve made vocab progress. Today’s vocab lesson had context, an introduction, and several kinds of practice with the words. It still just didn’t feel like a fantastic piece of the lesson.
After teaching, I began volunteering at a hospital in the ER. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now, and it was really fun and tiring. I’m now officially copping out on the rest of today’s blog journal to plan for tomorrow and go to bed.
