Multitasking

So here we are again. I’d love to update the blog more often but it takes a bit of time and I just keep getting busier. For quicker snippets of information keep an eye on our Facebook page and my twitter feed (below).

So, I had lessons with the second grade today, their first since they finished their writing for the project. So we’ve moved onto something else now, a discussion about environmental waste, but at the start of the lesson I made announcements about our final book cover image (see previous post) and the opening of our Indiegogo fund raising project. That’ll open on October 26th, so please join us and contribute, if you feel so willing.

I’m also putting together the reviews into one massive text file that will be our book.

However, mostly I am setting up the Indiegogo page for the project. As I reported last time, we opened a bank account to store the funding. However, before I can input that information into the web page I have to complete and post our introductory video. So I’ve moved that forward.

I’ve just finished the script. I’ve leaned towards the humorous, but it depends on if I can pull it off well enough to be charming to make people willing to hand over money. Hopefully, as long as they understand how passionate we all are about this – helping the students realize their potential, doing something creative, making changes to the English education system and helping victims of last year’s triple disaster – they will be convinced. Fingers crossed.

Now excuse me, I have to go speak to a man about arranging all the students in the hall to shout “Hello!” at my camera.

Return

Hello there! Long time no see. I’ve been on school vacation, so it’s been hard to keep track of progress with the project. As of today though, I’m back at school daily. So regular reports will resume.

I was pleased to see that many first draft reports have been handed in already. I really thought the students would wait until our first lesson. There are still many to collect, but I’m going to give them a week to get the first draft in.

My task now, is to check this and prompt them to write more. I’m going to ask questions to make them give me more information. Then the reviews will be even longer. I’m pleased with how long they are actually, but we are publishing these, so the more the better.

After they are checked, I shall return them to make a final draft on paper, then it will be off to the computer room to type the final draft! The students are doing that, of course! If I typed them all up, we would never get to release this book!

Take care, and I’ll report to you again very soon.
