EDC3100 Prac Reflection 19/05/2016 Day 4

I joined in the English learning support class in the morning, where the students are working on the skills they need for their assessment tasks. The teacher focused on short sentences that involve movement/verbs and build tension, and the students had to highlight sentences with 4 words or less. 365 more words
