Report Cards...tick, tock, tick, tock...

The "intensive" session at my school is coming to a close. The last day is on Tuesday, August 22nd. Students have been coming to class five days a week for three hours a day, for the past four weeks.

Right now I have a total of 28 kids and I have to do report cards for each of them. Although time consuming, the assessment and evaluation of their performance in class is a critical component as they will learn to improve after receiving feedback. Learning the English language is a difficult task (or learning any new language for that matter) and for these children, their quest towards mastering English requires me to provide them with the feedback they need. That requires putting in the time (no, not jail time) and doing some actual thinking as I analyze the performance of each student.

The image “http://www.specialty-calendars.com/hour-glass.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

This very well could be the first "real" post on my experience teaching English in Korea. All the other posts are fillers...I mean, come on, who doesn't enjoy seeing pictures of food everyday? Especially pictures of food they can only dream of eating? ;-)

Note: don't worry, a food post will be coming shortly.
