Raise your glasses…

I read a wonderful post on a short end-of-the-year activity that enforces public speaking skills as well as reflection and collegiality.

However, the schedule for the last day this year is different, so that students spend more time with their peers.  Unfortunately, I could not experiment with the Pop Up Toasts.

However, I plan to  toast  the new academic year in August.  Each student will give a ‘cheers’ in their own language and then continue (in English) with what they’d like to be able to do this year that they can’t do now.

Then we’ll toast and reflect on the end of the year on our last lesson.  Talk about backward design!
