This is just a note to myself I thought I’d share here:
“Ben, if you are going to start some PQA or start a story, don’t bullshit around with all that “start-class-with-announcements-in-English-bullshit”. The kids don’t listen to it anyway.
“Just start in with the CI. It sets a different tone. If it’s general PQA with no story targeted (as in Circling with Balls cards or One Word Images), just start in with the TL. If it’s a story, write your structures down and just start in with the PQA.
“When you do this, you will feel the difference. It sets a tone. Just start in. You will notice something.”
