Date: May 29th on Friday, 2020 from 8:00 to 9:30 (9:00 – 10:30 in JST)
Course: Japanese Basic Composition 2
Used app: Streaming on DingTalk, Presentation by Powerpoint with 59 slides
Numbers of Students: 25 out of 28
90 minutes attendance: 22 students
Shorter attendances: 76, 18, and one student was recorded as completely absent by the system.
completely absent: 3 students. The system record says that four students didn’t watch the streaming at all. However, one student sent me 5-questions quiz which means he listened to my class. It is possible that someone helps him, but a guy who is likely to help him was completely absent today. Therefore, I guess this student listened to my class and sent 5-question quiz answer by himself.
Responses to my requests like Quiz answers onto BBS:
Attendance check: 27. Of the 27, three students were recorded that they didn’t watch the streaming. One student sent me the 5-question quiz answer, while two sent nothing. This is why I think there were 25 students in today’s class.
5-question quiz took a place of quiz by answering on BBS. What I call 5-question quiz is that I ask the students to write their answers onto a sheet of paper during the class and then, right after the class, the students sent 5 answers to me.
Today too, I did this 5-question quiz. However, I wanted to confirm if the students were really connected or not, I asked the students to input A, B, or C onto BBS in the middle of the class once. A meant “I live in a city”, B meant “I live in a countryside”, and C meant “I live in a remote area”.
Teachings were almost identical to the class for 1836 on Tuesday.
Homework assignment was also almost identical to what was assigned for class 1836.
Issues and Problems:
I have got a problem with this composition class for sophomore students. Actually I don’t have enough resource to teach under current circumstance. Even I don’t have the designated textbook. I think I can continue the class with writing a paper for tourism. But other than that, how I continue to teach until the end of semester? This is a quite serious issue.
