An emotional moment for me!! We have come to an end in the project. This is the first day of the post-interview phase. 



Session #5: Listening and pronunciation in writing!

Posted On 2/4/2021 12:57:00 AM, 0Comments

We had our last lesson with the students today. We still have a way together, but it was our last lesson face to face. Students have prepared for the sound recording process by doing pronunciation exercises for the animated videos we will make about stories. 

  • I have introduced the IPA chart and sounds to the students and we had small practices on words including problematic sounds.
  • The students used online dictionaries on their mobile phones to check the pronunciation of the words.
  • They practiced reading their second essays and recorded their voices in different classes. 
  • They shared their recordings with after the class. 

It was a very productive and useful lesson both for students and for me. They stated that practicing especially on problematic sounds will be very useful in future speech processes. That's why I'm really happy for them. 😊

Session #4: Second essays on real-life stories from Turkey!

Posted On 2/2/2021 12:41:00 AM, 0Comments

Today my students have started to write about real-life social justice issues that took place in Turkey. 

  • Before the class, I prepared five different outlines on real-life social justice issues in Turkey.
  • I gave one outline out to each student.
  • The students wrote the first drafts using these outlines.
  • The students read the essays of their peers and identified the mistakes and strengths of the essays.
  • The students revised their essays according to the feedback they received.

Session 4 Lesson Plan

It made me very happy to see students' interest and enthusiasm for research on these stories. It was especially satisfying for me to watch their development process and observe their changes in the process. 😇
