ICR Class 6: Cycle 1 sharing news stories & graded reader 3: developing your ways of making notes
Summary: After speaking about your exciting weekend activities, you got to share your out-of-class listing with others at the tables. We also explored different ways of presenting for super book talk. Finally, you wrote reflections in your Google Doc. to think about your English learning progress. The questions are:
1. How did you participate in class today? Please describe as best you can.
2. What did you learn about your issue? You speaking pairs issues?
3. What are your next SMART (simple, manageable, attainable, reasonable, timely) learning goals?
