BRINGING BACK THE LOST ART OF LETTER WRITING – MY GOLDEN YEARS, FORTUNE COOKIES IN MY MATZO BALL SOUP
I got this idea to make the video because I needed to do something new in preparation for my 3-day seminar for Chinese teachers of English at the end of July. I wanted to start off with an idea to WOW the teachers. Often teachers are a boring lot, and I have to light the fire under their ‘butts’!
I had decided sometime ago to talk about newspapers and how they can improve English competency. One of my teacher students has a weekly Newspaper study class with her high school English students. There’s a newspaper published in China for English high school students, so the language isn’t high level but the topics are very current. This is a wonderful way for her students to improve. And I help her every week with stimulating ideas to develop for her classes.
And so in a matter of a few hours the video was born!
