November 21, 2006: Teaching English with George

Here is George's 8am class. Our 2 hours were divided into two 1 hour sessions. For the first hour, Ellen and I shared our story. For the 2nd hour, we broke into 4 groups of about 9 students each and each student was required to ask a question - related to something we talked about or related to the small group discussion. This was small group learning at its best
