It is my honor and pleasure today to film for the “Teaching Demonstration Project” with the National Changhua University of Education. The idea is to demonstrate some innovative teaching strategies targeting reading and grammar in textbooks for all the junior high English teachers. On top of that, it is also my privilege to work with those lovely students in雅心書軒for the very first time after its unveiling ceremony at PHJH.
A wide variety of teaching activities helped motivate students’ interest of learning by keeping them busy completing tasks like predicting, summarizing, clarifying and so on. Also, with the ready-made board game
Having muscle aches and not getting enough sleep last night, I frantically set up all the gear for filming all by myself, fumbling with the tripods and the cameras while the students were already waiting. Trying my best to calm down and proceed with the lesson plan, I finally began filming at about eight thirty. With twenty-five students divided into six groups, I think they really had a good time learning English with all the intriguing activities, especially when receiving tofu pudding as a reward from me in the afternoon.
On such short notice, I was still working on the worksheets very late last night. Thanks for Albert’s help with the activity instructions, I’m confident in doing this in English in front of the camera. Most important of all, I am really looking forward to the editing of the videos in the hope of achieving desirable results.
