English Video Project: If I Were President
It’s really late, but after overcoming a few obstacles and finding the time, here is my summer camp project I worked on with my second year boys.
Ever wonder what a 8th grade Korean kids would do if they were the president? Find out here!
Today is Pepero Day in Korea.
Tough kid who always acts up gets on my last nerve.
I make him do the plank position.
Still flapping his mouth.
I make him do the plan position on his forearms.
Throw him outside in the cold hallway, no jacket, on his knees.
He then thinks he is slick enough to open a pack of Pepero without me noticing.
Oh, I noticed.
I marched over and grabbed it out of his hand.
I said I would give it back at the end of class.
I take the Pepero back to him, like I said, and put it on his desk.
Then I smashed the hell out of them with my fist about 5-6 times.
He stopped smiling.
And I kept my word.
Don’t know about Pepero Day? Check out the video for an explanation.
While reviewing phrases used to give advice:
Me: “Ok, what is your concern?”
Student A: “My glasses always slide down on my face because my face is oily. I wash my face everyday. What should I do?”
Me: “What advice do you have for him?”
Student B: “…. You should… You should work at oil factory.”
Me: “… HAHA - because his face is so oily??”
Student B: “Yes.”
Me: ” HAHAHA… Anything else??”
Student B: “Yes… You had better become swimmer…”
Me: “… why?”
Student: “Because oil easy to float.”
Me: “HAHAHAHAHAHA!… Oh, man, anything else???”
Student B: “Yes… Why don’t you be Ghost Rider.”
Me: “Ghost Rider? The superhero?”
Student B: “Yes.”
Me: “-Oh wait! Because his face is so oily it would be easy for him to set it on fire and look like Ghost Rider????”
Student B: “Yes!”
Entire class: “BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA”
Halloween lesson, showing Michael Jackson’s Thriller while the kids work on their Halloween masks.
Kid stares at the video, looking very confused.
Other kids look a little scared or are laughing at it.
Looks like the wheels are really turning, here.
Finally, he looks at me and shouts
"Annie! Michael Jackson is a man?!"
That one cut deep, Korea. Real deep.
