I did one of those class evaluations and I got some pretty good data. It basically says that 90% of students love storytelling and like 5% would rather do book work. I think that’s about what you guys teach. I also learned that I can learn to speak a little slower and make myself more comprehensible. I love how some kids comment to get rid of the textbook altogether.
Remember, I have to teach 8 chapters in that textbook, so there are activities to learn vocabulary lists and garbage like that. Not sure if you find this interesting, but nobody in my dept will read it or respond so I wanted someone else to see it.
Thanks for all you do. Looking forward to seeing you in Chicago.
