Practiced reading for gist and detailed comprehension with a text about Mohammed Ali.

PERSONAL AIMS (refer to your previous TP tutor observation notes: “development needs” section) be specific on HOW

2. Manage my time better and make sure I’m setting the right limits for each task.

CLASS PROFILE: (include numbers, gender ratio, nationalities, strong vs. weak Ss, motivation, interests, class dynamics, preferred activities)
The class consists of 8 students, from which 6 are Polish (5 women and 1 man) and 2 Ukrainian (2
Antonina and Katarzyna (Kubinska) enjoy working together and are always asking me to elicit some
word or expressions they don’t quite understand while monitoring, they are very enthusiastic about
speaking in class.
Yuliya and Anna from Ukraine also pair quite often. Yuliya is quite shy and doesn’t open up that much
when she has to do PW with a polish classmate, and even though she can be a weak student if we talk
about grammar, she’s a quick learner when it comes to pronunciation.
Anna doesn’t seem to have the same problem while doing PW with polish classmates, she’s a quick
learner of grammar but still has some issues with the pronunciation of some words.
Agnieszka and Katarzyna (Krysta) like to go work together most of the time as well. Agnieszka is quick
learner and often takes active part during OCFB. Katarzyna (Krysta) is quite talkative while doing PW,
but she doesn’t really participates during the OCFB.
Marta doesn’t really open up during PW and is very shy during OCFB , but she´s an amazing solo
Leszek is a talkative student, with a decent background on the language, he tends to dominate when
it comes OCFB.

classes that are relevant to your aims? Students’ interest/general knowledge in relation to the material/context / topic you will be using?)

discussing about sports, They will also enjoy talking about box and learning a bit more about
Mohammed Ali’s career.
