Teaching diary: Problems found and solutions: The girls cannot put what they have learned in their speaking, neither in writing. They remember something, but not exactly. The teacher needs to help them to activate what’s in their memory, and to put it into their speaking and writing. The girls have some difficulty producing correct tones. The teacher can help through her own speaking and correcting them. The girls do not have a good habit of listening to Chinese in class, even if what’s said by the teacher is what they have learned. The teacher can help them develop it by speaking more target language. Achieved points: The girls have been used to Ms. Wang’s class procedures as the following: 1. Class report All the 8 girls are able to present: Today is (the date), (day). Today is (weather---fine, cloudy, rainy…) 2. News report News of the 1st week: 昨天下午我们学校同学在 Kirt 校区打球。(We played ball games at Kirt campus yesterday afternoon.) 我要有妹妹了。(I am going to have a baby sister) 昨天我看电视了解到新奥尔良有飓风。(I watched TV and learned there was tornado in New Orleans ) 我弟弟今天早上打球(了)。 我打算今天去打网球。 … The girls are supposed to share the news, and the way to express themselves in Chinese. 3. Girls use classroom expressions: 上课!起立!老师好!同学们好!请坐!下课!同学们再见! 老师再见! ( Class begins. Stand up! Good morning, Ms. Wang! Good morning, girls! Sit down please! Class is over. Good bye, Ms. Wang! Good-bye!)
