Quick Write 111111 “Something tangible”

In tonight’s Dr. Beglar class, he mentioned one sad but common situation found in an English class of a Japanese college – A student completed the spring semester of 15 meetings and thought to him/herself, “I’ve somehow survived the semester and earned a credit, but what have I learned?” I guess both the teacher and the student are responsible for such a tragic outcome. The teacher could’ve taught his/her class more effectively while keeping students motivated and engaged, and the student could’ve learned English more seriously with a clearer objective. What Dr. Beglar proposed to us is create a task which leaves students “something tangible” while and/or after the learning.

Learning a certain number of words in each class is one way of doing that, he said. After 15 meetings, students will have learned 20×15= 300 words as active vocabulary, for instance. They will be able to look back 300 words they (are supposed to) learn after the semester. Keeping the records of word-per-minute in “Timed Reading” is another way, he added. After 15 meetings, students will obtain 15 records of word-per-minute on their “Timed Reading” charts. Even if the students are not very self-aware of how much they’ve learned after the semester, those tangible records may help them reflect on what they did (or did not) do to their English learning in some way. How much and how well we’ve learned a language is not always tangible. But “something tangible” such as the number of learned words, the records of word-per-minute, or the records of daily Ondoku practice could make a language learner feel less empty. My daily Quick Write practice is also one solution to make my English learning tangible. It makes me feel less empty for sure.
