Hello again everyone,
Today in my Homestay English class most of the students managed to post a thread on the Sister Classes Forum. Their posts are about their hometowns. Talking about one’s hometown was a topic in their textbook. So, it relates to to the syllabus. I decided it would be better for them to post their own threads. I thought it would be easier for your students to comment on the posts that way. I’m going to try to have my students comment on the threads started by your students. The problem is that some of the posts are very long with contributions by many students. It’s going to be difficult to get the students to read the posts. They’ll look at all the text and just give up before they start. If I can, I’ll use diigo or something else to highlight some of the posts to help the students.
Anyway, I hope your students will comment on my students’ posts. My students are looking forward to it.
