Ahh, the first day of Conference Week!
Today we reviewed clauses through the Rally Robin technique. In pairs, one student identified the clauses the odd-numbered sentences while the other student did the even-numbered ones**. They then traded papers and graded each other’s work. After this, I gave a brief overview about the upcoming Semester Project where the students will work in groups to present each week’s grammar lesson*. After this, it was time to go. Such is the reality of class time during conference week!
