Date: March 18th on Wednesday, 2020 from 8:00 to 9:30 (9:00 – 10:30 in JST)
Course: Japanese Listening 2
Used app: Streaming on DingTalk, Presentation by Powerpoint (73 slides)
Numbers of Students: 27
All the 27 students stayed with me online class from start to the end.
Responses to the “During-the-Class_Quiz”:
I didn’t much “During-the-Class” quiz this time. I asked only four students to get reactions. This wasn’t enough to get responses and to give them feedback. I need to improve the way to get students’ reaction.
1: Review of Homework: 24 out of 27 students sent me their answers of homework. Four students failed to send to me in time. All 24 got full scores.
2: Review of the last class; A lot of rote training. I am not sure but this kind of mechanical repetition would get criticized in current second language learning norm.
3: Noun predicate sentences that can mean existence of a person or things. Last time I taught them two types of verb predicate sentences that can mean existence of a person/animal and things that don’t have life.
Drawing a picture by the direction of listening material. This is the activity that the textbook intended. It’s good to give it to students as a homework.
Issues and Problems:
Good balance between rote training and “meaningful learning”
