Class theme/topics discussed:
How was Spring Break
Conversation Project

How did you pick this theme or topic?
Today was just right after Spring Break, students might be still in vacation on their mind, so I just let them talk what they did during spring vacation.
Class Project- We have to work on Class project for the end of semester. I gave them some options what they want to do for it.
Creating Anime with, Video-shooting-1)Onomatopoeia, 2)Introduce something(例えば、各学校について。どんな活動が行われているとか、このビルではどんな科目が勉強できるとか・・お題は後から学生と話しあうつもりで) 3)Interview 4)Cooking 5)Music

How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
I told them we need to decide what we are going to do for class project. 次の時間までに何をしたいか考えてくるように指示。もし他にいいアイディアがあればクラスにもってくるように。

How did students react?
They were so tired today…I knew it because today was right after Spring Break.

Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes, I think so. They tried to focus on the class.

What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)

Wold you recommend this activity for a future class?

Why or why not?
Sometimes, just talking is good. Especially, after long Break, it works.
Because class project is required.
