Much better class today. I told my students not to bother taking out their books, which put everyone in a good mood. I’d copied some worksheets from other books, so we could review the semester without boring everyone.
It was such a confidence booster! I wish I’d done other review days, it was so good to remind my students how much they’ve learned. I wish I’d kept their first papers to hand back now… they would be amazed at themselves.
We have a state exam in a few weeks, but since I won’t be here next semester, I won’t be rewarded or penalized based on their scores. I want my class to pass because it will bring them confidence in their English. But they tell me they successfully returned a defective item, talked to the superintendent, applied for a better job, got a better job, etc., and that’s much more valuable than a test.
