    1. Thank you. I’ll tell him. We’ll need him and maybe a few of the other boys more as we go forward with our little videos. Yes, he spent the year in Annick Chen’s class learning Chinese at Lincoln. So he knows how to play the game. Unfortunately, he is going to Columbine next year, and their Chinese teacher mainly teaches the characters, according to the department chair. Oh well. La vie d’artiste…

  1. And…he did a great job being “Archie,” although he just doesn’t seem very “Archie-ish” by nature 😉 Thank you Evan!

    This series is helping me so much. When I watch the video and then go to school, I am in “the zone,” meaning “the slow zone.” I really and truly think I am going more slowly after watching these. There is just this aura of calm. I got way more reps on all three structures in all of my classes today. I attribute this directly to keeping the focus on the structures. When I felt myself branching off from the main conversation I brought it back and stayed on the structures. Yay!

    1. 4 year olds? you mean, you have more than one????? wow, you surely have your plate full and seem to be adding side dishes by the tons!!!! Bless your heart!

      1. Yep, two 4-year-old girls and a 14-month-old boy. Our oldest turns 5 in July and our middle one just turned 4 in February. Yeah, that’s a 7 month gap. Our middle girl is biologically our niece but we’ve had her since she was a baby and we’re adopting her.

        And yes, my plate is pretty full and I seem to constantly be adding things. I think I’m a glutton for punishment or something. My passion translates into joining all kind of committees and adding tasks to my to-do list

        1. And Chris I am just making an assumption here, but your wife is an ANGEL? Because that much energy going on in your house takes an angel to organize it. You have all my congrats and well wishes. That many young ones at once takes patience!

          1. My wife is awesome! She not only tolerates me being overly ambitious but she’s being very encouraging of me taking a group of students to Spain next year!

  2. Hey,

    I just took a look at Annick Chen’s videos when I followed Ben’s link to school tube from the main page. Is there any way to find out what the organizational hanging wall is at the front of the classroom in the video? Also, it would be really helpful to know what things I should prepare to make over the summer to hang on the classroom walls. Any help?

  3. I’ll follow up on this tomorrow with Annick and get back to you. The posters discussion we will definitely have here as part of our gear up effort for the fall. I am pretty sure on what I want. Stuff I will really use, trust me. In CI classes, posters actually mean something.
