Post Teaching Reflections
This activity was a success irrespective of the students' proficiency level. There was 100% student participation. Specially the beginner level class showed explicit enthusiasm as they prepared themselves for the individual speeches. During the activity for a moment I thought I should give the beginner level class the option to choose two members from the group to present the poster assuming the task would be too difficult for them. But I was glad that each student strived hard to express the information with the limited language skills they had.
