After a full day of professional development with ESL guru Virginia Rojas, I was having a hard time coming up with a slice of life to write. As I stared into my blank white screen, I was reminded that it’s not easy to write. It’s not easy to write everyday. It’s not always easy to choose a topic to write about. I was reminded of my struggling writers. How can I help them?
Maybe it was a mixture of my brain being on overload and crammed with a million pieces of new information, but I had writer’s block. I thought that this must be how my students must feel after a long day of school. Many of them go to academies (hakgwon) after the regular school day where they do more studying, then they do homework. I’m still amazed at how they can manage all this at such a young age.
Look out for future posts on some of the great things I learned from this P.D. about teaching ESL students! 🙂
