Class Activities:

 -1: In the 1st session, the students were asked to proofread and revise the chapter of abstract, conclusions, and remarks in their paper.

 -2: Each student was called and read part of his/her paper. Teacher gave him/her advice.

-3: In the 2nd session, the students write a short essay to describe one of three poems about love. Those three poems were given to the student using BBS. The students were required to take a photo of their hand writing and send it to me when the class was over.



Issues and Problems:

Three poems about love were given to the students to write a short essay. The most popular one that was chosen by many students was “Aki no Seppun (A Kiss in Autumn)” by Ms.Masako Takiguchi. I think this poem is about love that was lost. Scattered white flowers of bushclover on a path, White ashes on a trail in the mountain, and wind blow coming through Japanese pampas grasses are all indicating the sadness of losing love. This is just my understanding. I feel sadness, emptiness, and a huge void in mind when I read this poem. Am I wrong? I don’t know. But it was interesting that most students thought this poem was romantic and beautiful with joy of love. Maybe it is natural that there is a difference about interpretations on the same poem between 20-year olds and a 50-year old.
