My Impressions of Week One
We managed to do everything I had planned for the first six classes. We had a balance of reading, writing, and grammar. We have had our first quiz and have started working on Power Builders and Rate Builders in our Reading Lab box. All the students have their textbooks, and we have begun working in them. I have also introduced the concepts of SQR, A.P.P.L.E., the writing process, sentence elements, and sentence types. These concepts will continue to be very important for us all semester.
Finally, every student has created a blog (although a couple of the links are still not working yet), and they have learned how to create and edit a post, leave a comment, and upload a photo.
It has been a very productive week!
