Friday, October 15th, Sogo Eigo 3, 9:00-10:30 and 10:40-12:10 (Class #2)

Information regarding our schedule:

There is NO class next Friday, October 22nd; it is a holiday at TPU. The next scheduled class is on TUESDAY, October 26th (金曜日の授業). HOWEVER, I must teach at Toyama Tandai on that day. So, our 3rd class will be face-to-face on October 29th. There will be a make-up class at the end of the semester. There is no problem about this. 

Today. 

Session 1: Look at the picture on p. 109. You can watch the video here:

The part where she licks the frog from about 2:20, so I suggest you watch from the beginning until this point. After this, most of the video is about insects.  How does she test whether the frog has toxins? She says one word; what is it?

Do p. 109 B  -> Come back to the main room.

Session 2: Do p. 110 C; Do p. 111, A -> Come back to the main room. 

Session 3: Do. p. 111, B, #1 and #2. -> Come back to the main room.

Finish.

Today we will start on Unit 4, Process Paragraphs. 

When we start I will put everybody into 4 or 5 breakout rooms randomly.

Session 1. Look at p. 78; it's a scuba diver. 'Scuba' is an acronym: Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus. Everybody in your group, please think of another different acronym. I will ask you later. Read p. 79, How to Fight off a Shark. Do Ex. 3. Do p. 80, Ex. 4. (For #3, I think it means 'What would you do if you saw a shark while you were swimming?')  -> SHOW ME

Session 2. Jump forward to p. 84 and read the paragraph 'Royalty in Your Garden.' Then go back to p. 81 and finish Ex. 1, A. There are three blank boxes the chart. Write something in those blank spaces. (#6 is a bit difficult.) ->SHOW ME

Finish.
