Often lesson plans may seem like just that – a plan for a lesson, but there’s nothing more exciting than a lesson plan that has been put to the test and comes out on the winning end!
Shimokitazawa Smith’s youngest student had the pleasure of seeing the results of a successful lesson plan. Let’s call her ‘K’. Fresh out of high school ‘K’ started with us during our summer special 2007. As someone who loves Shimokita, she would often try to explain the location and directions to some of her favorite places in this exciting little part of Tokyo. Thus prompted, I decided to take a leap and try an Intermediate lesson plan with her “Directions”. She took to this with ease, and was grateful for the vocabulary to express her ideas in English. But the success didn’t end there…
Two weeks after this lesson plan K dashed into class, breathless and excitedly explained how she saw a couple of American tourists in Shimoikitazawa who just happened to be lost. Using her vocabulary from the Directions lesson plan she was able to point them in the right direction.
Another successful class at Shimokitazawa Smiths English Conversation School!!
