students leveled up real quick

17:47 Wednesday 06 December 2017 JST

At my third of three kids classes here at JB, we had a new student, 4 or 5 years older than the others. The two previously-oldest girls in the class suddenly stopped messing around and tried significantly harder than usual. Such a nice change of pace! I used a technique I learned from Tariq: keep having them switch conversation partners and repeat the same conversation with a new partner. They gained confidence each time and it went quite well. (It helped that there were 4 students in class today whereas it had always been 3.)
