Special Cross-Cultural Considerations: Include here anything relevant to culture that


you will either incorporate as part of your lesson or that you need to be attuned to in terms
of your students background to ensure a lesson that is culturally responsive.
Because the chubby bunny game is a popular game in America and not very well known in Korea,
we created a video explaining and demonstrating the game for the students. It also shows us as
teachers playing the game and helps the girls feel more comfortable about playing a game they
dont know. Once again, our lesson emphasizes the ability to be your own hero and a hero to others
and try to help the girls not be so focused on their appearance or success.

Materials: Include here all the materials that you need, including textbook titles and the
page numbers you will refer to.
Projector, internet, video example, online timer, marshmallows, catchphrase cards, superhero team
table markers, superhero team cards, paper, pens, suckers (for prizes)

Lesson Sequence: This may be adjusted as necessary to accommodate unique lesson plan
features. For each step, explain what the teacher will do, the expectation of what the
students will do, and how long the stage should take.

Reflection Over Second Lesson Plan

This week Katie and I wrapped up our last week of teaching. We both learned a lot about
ourselves and about teaching, and we mutually agree that this was an important period of growth.
We had a great time teaching and interacting with the students; we are sad to leave them but we
know that they are going to be successful and will go far.
Overall, our lesson went extremely well. This week we tried something completely new
by playing the Chubby Bunny challenge. Most of the girls had never heard of the game before
and it was a little nerve-wracking introducing a foreign game to them. However, the majority, if
not all, of the students were extremely engaged in this lesson and were having fun. The girls
faces were filled with enthusiasm and all their worries about academics seemed to fade and
disappear for those 50 minutes. The writing activity that we incorporated into our lesson also

went really well; many girls wrote thoughts from their heart and it was heart-warming as a
teacher to read the inner thoughts of my students. Though our lesson went quite well, there is one
particular part of the lesson that I wish could have gone better. Some girls could fit more
marshmallows in their mouth compared to other girls and that gave them an advantage when it
came to the game. They were able to pronounce their phrases easier and clearer compared to
other students who had smaller mouths. This made the competition a little bit unfair, but that is
how it works with games like this.
Just like last weeks lesson, this lesson allowed the students to be kids and have fun in the
classroom without having to listen to lectures or complete worksheet after worksheet. The
students got to be active and release their stored up energy through the Chubby Bunny challenge
and we also allowed the students to have a cool down activity where they got to write down the
answers to various questions and have the opportunity to share them to the class. Again, the
students got to share their answers with the class and this provided the students to get to know
each other better. Katie and I walked around during the activities to see if the students were
completing the activity correctly and the students were saying the catchphrase correctly back to
the student with the marshmallows so we knew that the students were understanding the
objectives. We also walked around during the writing activity and for those students who had
blank papers we talked to them about what they were confused about and we worked together to
formulate answers in English. We collected the worksheets at the end of class and graded their
performance on completion and use of English. Again, in almost every class there is a noticeable
level of English proficiency between the most and least proficient students. The proficient
students had longer answers on their writing activity and the less proficient students had one or
two sentences.
Some students had a hard time coming up with answers for the writing activity and to
treat those errors Katie and I walked around the class and looked at each of students papers. For
the papers that were blank we talked to the student and worked together to formulate an answer
in English. This really helped the students take the thoughts in their head and get it out on paper.

Katie and I decided on the Chubby Bunny challenge because it is a fun way to have the
students execute the writing objective. The students have to pay attention to the student with the
marshmallows so that they can say the phrase back correctly in order to move on to the next
catchphrase. As mentioned above, the students were extremely engaged because many of them
had never heard of this game before and when I told them it is a popular game played in America
they immediately sat up in their seats and payed attention. They were really excited to play a fun
game like Chubby Bunny in class. Though the game was new to them, the catchphrases that they
were saying in their groups were familiar to them because they had created them in last weeks
lesson.
In general, the greatest success in teaching this week was the level of engagement that we
were able to get out of the students. The students were excited, engaged, and competitive. They
listened well and they played the game with a competitive spirit. After class, many students came
up to me and told me that they had so much fun in class. Many of the students told me that I will
be a great teacher someday and it warmed my heart to hear that because that means they enjoyed
my class. There are still many things that I need to learn about teaching and pedagogy, but for the
small amount of experience and training that I had going into this I am very proud of what I was
able to do and the impact I was able to make.
