We had an outlined “ game plan”.
I worked with an experienced group and they gave great guidance.
A) The evening before: We prepared our lesson plan. Usually “English Exercises or Lessons”.
B) Next morning around breakfast time, we fine-tuned our “lesson plan” and discussed it with other members. We would also give “thought of the day” and read the “Daily minutes” from the previous day. Afterward, we were on our way to the schools.
C) Did our introductions to the classes and interacted with students in a way that would support the learning objectives. (Speaking, listening or writing in English).
D) After classes, we would have a “regroup” with fellow volunteers and talk through “what went well and what could be improved“. This was a great time for others in our group to give suggestions.
E) In the afternoon, we had about an hour and 30 minutes to tutor about 4-6 young kids who were wanting to learn English. Usually playing cards or memory games.
F) After dinner, we would start on our next day's learning plan and discussion.
This process was repeated every day except weekends.
