1. Work completed list
-After the spring break, we got back to work. I continued to teach the students Chinese traditional games,such as kicking shuttlecock, throwing sandbags, clapping hands and hopscotch.
-One news media have interviewed me and Kathy in Chongqing. After the video was released, I uploaded it to YouTube so that more people can understand our deaf CC program. Some of my colleagues said that they enjoyed it, too.
-I and Mandy are working together to vary the teaching forms to the HS students. We tried several different ways, such as watch movie, group discussion and spring outing. I feel like we still have many things to learn before the summer break.
-An ASL interpreter who have met me for one time before asked me about some CSL signs. I sent her the demonstrating video of mine by email. And we will meet in the near future to discuss more about sign language interpretation.
-On Monday night, the fire alarm went off in my apt but I couldn’t hear it until 15 minutes later my Chinese neighbor mentioned this on our WeChat group. Luckily enough, it was a fake alarm. But it was really dangerous-what will happen if the fire really broke out while I am not aware of it? The next day I went to the rent office and they promised to set up a flashing smoke alarm for me. On Friday they have finished installing it.
-I met Kathy on Tuesday afternoon. With the help of a Chinese interpreter, we discussed the working plan in the next two months.
