This class has been a really great experience, because of the combination of teaching and discussion, because of the great people in the class, and because the topic is one that is fascinating to me and also very, very pertinent to the state of the US today. In our final class [...]

This week, once again, I couldn’t make it out to Vermillion for the soccer game because of the time at which we had to leave Oberlin. There was no ESL class again, though. I wish I had gotten to teach more. I definitely hope to continue teaching next semester as well.

Today we made little bags of candy to put on the doors of the houses, and included little notes in Spanish saying Happy Easter and reminding everyone that there was class tonight. Almost everyone was busy watching a soccer game, so we were worried no one would show up. Two students [...]

Notes on my first day of ESL (4/10/11):
This was my first time teaching ESL, and my first time at Willoway, but Cindy and Maya have been here a lot and know some of the workers. Our class was at a large mix of levels of proficiency in English, which made it [...]

Today we discussed police brutality and “know your rights.” The stories of people being pulled over are frightening and disgusting, and it’s even more disturbing to me that even in a case where someone has tax documentation of ten or more years in residence, has a family in the US, and [...]

My ESL teaching will not start until after break, so I’ll blog about what we’ve been discussing in class, and my thoughts on ESL and immigration law. This week’s class was on farmworker rights, and though I couldn’t make it to class, I have some thoughts on the subject and I [...]
