23 Oct 2009 Lesson 1 Week in Review edit

  • It really engaged the kids.
  • Even though it was a “fun” lesson, they spoke more English than they did in most other lessons.
    • something to be learned from that
  • it's OK to ham it up a little with the kids .. at least, with the 7th graders
  • mike jackson video ethics??
    • me singing?
    • the kids in multiple classes did want to stay after class was finished to watch the videos
