Over time, I will take apart the previous thread regarding this text book series and seeing if I can figure out which chapters each previous contribution belongs in.  I will lock that thread from now on so please post you lessons here under each respective lesson. If you have a problem with the threads working, please send me a message and Iíll try to get everything fixed up within the next couple of days. This has been a huge undertaking since I donít use this book but hopefully it will help you all out in the future to stay organized.  Good luck with making some great lessons!

*Until I get everything taken off the old and put on the new, please check here... http://waygook.org/index.php?topic=4936.0.html for any lesson plans and comments previously made.  That thread will now be locked.

Hey there, for prezis you can just put the URL on here and they can actually go to the specific prezi and download it on to their computer. But if you're trying to have it available here, check to see that the file type it downloads as is compatible with what we're able to accept. Then test it out just to make sure by downloading and opening it yourself.  Good luck~!

Hey I have a lot to contribute from Grade 1 but I really need someone to clarify my issue that I posted above. Why are my Grade 1 textbook chapters entirely different from the ones listed in the thread index? My grade 2 and 3 match up perfectly to the thread index. My grade 1 book was bought new this year, so did they buy an old edition or is the thread index based on an old edition?

I'm not trying to be a whiner, I have a lot of grade 1 material to contribute but as it stands now there is nowhere for it to go.

Thanks in advance.

@susielee - Are you a NET or a Korean teacher?

If you ask a specific question we will be more able to help you.......

If you are a NET:
The lessons hosted on waygook from this textbook are far from complete. Part of your job is planning your OWN lessons. WG is great, but other people are not going to do your job for you. :)

Hi all,

I am currently teaching at a middle school and I am really struggling to come up with lesson ideas. I have been teaching for 3 weeks (i am currently in my forth) and I have gone through 3 lessons plans with my grade 3 to varying success. Now I had originally planned to stick as close to the text book as I can but have found that to make the lessons incredibly boring however having asked my co-teacher about the text book she replied not to worry about sticking to close to the book and just try to get the kids to speak certain phrases. Now this is my problem I can't seem to find a happy medium between the text book and being given a vast range of things to plan lessons on and no idea what to get my kids talking about.

So if any of you are using these texts book I was wondering what sort of subject you were talking about and for how many weeks you stay on a chapter (I have my 3rd grade classes once every week so I need a new lesson every week).

I will elaborate to give you an idea of what I have covered so far, Lesson 1 on agree/disagree (plus a little introduction about myself), Lesson 2 on Opinions and reasons (I showed a Mr bean clip and got them to talk to their friends asking for their opinion on the movie and asking why), lesson 3 I expanded on this idea getting them to discuss homework, fast food and music at a very basic level. I'm not really sure where to go from here, im desperately thinking on how to drill the idea of opinions/reasons and how to ask for them but I think will bore them to tears. I am tempted to review the whole chapter and make it as fun as possible and move on, which is why I want to know how long it takes for people to go through a chapter normally.

Sorry for the rambling post, just really stuck, any help would be much appreciated!
Title: Re: Jin H. Choi Middle School English 1, 2, & 3 Index
Post by: dbtm on September 21, 2011, 08:14:03 am
Hey for grade 3 I take two weeks per chapter. Right now I'm finishing the secone week of Chapter 7 "Teen Talk". Last week I did "Same Here" and this week I'm doing "What Do You Think?" I only use the activity textbook, the main book is for the korean teachers.

For the first semester I was here I tried to be super creative and fun and deviate from the textbook all the time. But I've come to realize that my students WANT to learn from the textbook. If its not in the textbook in front of them they dont think its important so they dont pay attention. As soon as I start talking about something that is not on the page in front of them they take it as a sign to "check out" and start screwing around.

Each chapter has a vocab list at the front. I usually split it into two - I let students try and explain the word in english then I give them a straight english-korean translation with a nice picture (get your coteacher to help translate). Introduce half the first week and the other half the second week. Then I go over the "Function In Focus" part at the top of the page, doing some listen and repeat dialogues based on the examples given on the page. Then I use the CD and have them do the "Listen" activities from Yellow Line, Green Line, and Blue Line. 

I think the key to keep it interesting is to make sure you have good pictures for your vocab/examples and also to have a cool video or something like that to show in the last 2-3 minutes.
Sorry my advice doesn't really apply to your situation, but thats what I do.

I don't know about anyone else but I've found having a little something outside the book as a wrap up helps to get them to think outside the book. The trouble is coming up with something each week.

I was just informed that I need to have speaking tests prepared in the next 2 days.  I need them for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade as well as levels A-C.   I'm new to making these tests and can't get any input from my co-teacher.  All I've been told is that they have to be from the book (Units 6-10).   So far I'm trying to pull some ideas from the Listen and Talk sections.  Anyone have any input or suggestions???
Title: Re: Jin H. Choi Middle School English 1, 2, & 3 Index
Post by: Tammy Warren on November 23, 2011, 03:16:16 pm
I do speaking tests and here is the hand outs I gave my students.

I would ask them the first two or three main questions, depends on skill and level, and then pick a random third one.

I also attached a rubric I use. We score 7 - 10 but you can adjust to fit your school.

Hope these help

I would also love to hear what recommendations people have for the CDs that come with the books. I have two sets of CDs for each grade level (1-3), one set is a collection of CDs in jewel cases, the others are in a PC/DVD style box (but are marked CD-Rom, they aren't DVDs as far as I know).

I have a Mac and, obviously, they won't run because they were intended for Windows. However, it seems to just be a collection of flash and PDF files, which should theoretically be platform independent. I've heard they can simply be copied, but so far, dragging/dropping/copying the pdfs doesn't work. Even trying to click a file on the CD (like, say, "Lesson1.pdf"), and open it results in an error saying the file doesn't exist or has been moved (though it hasn't, it's still on the CD).

Just in case someone thinks I'm being difficult (by trying to get the lessons on my Mac): running the CDs on my school laptop doesn't seem to want to work either. None will auto-run, and clicking the program file to start it usually results in waiting...with nothing happening. In one case, the CD did start, and had a bunch of menus for the different lessons... Except that when you actually clicked on a lesson to view that page in the book, the PDF pages wouldn't load, and behaved as if the actual PDF pages did not exist anywhere on the CD. The CDs were all shrink-wrapped, so it's doubtful that the CDs were damaged or erased.

Any bright ideas are welcome. I'd love to be able to look over these materials without having to haul the books home. And I assume these CDs are necessary for the listening portions that I'm supposed to teach, because nowhere in my books does it actually have the dialogue they're supposed to listen to (except for the dialogues in the activity book).

Post by: salinecjr on March 08, 2012, 10:33:30 pm
I had a somewhat similar problem, GoodMorning.

I am using a PC, and the CDs would not work. I actually had to go into my system settings and change the default system language so it would read and process Hangeul. It worked after that. One of my co-teachers said the cds had a copy lock and that I needed to go in and copy the files in a weird way, but I just copied them as a whole, and I haven't had a problem. I made .iso's of each just in case ;)

This is the book my public school uses and I hope that these lessons help me with my planning.

I was wondering if there was anyway for me to obtain the images in the book so that I can insert them into powerpoint.
I know that I can scan the book in and do it that way but I'm aware that some English textbooks come with CD's that have the lessons on so I could possibly cut them from the CD. Is this also the case with the Choi book?

I only use this book for grade 3 so I'm not sure about the others but....

It comes with a useless CD-rom (in a CD case) that just has audiotracks . It also comes with a set of CDs in a larger DVD style case that has a page by page reproduction of each page of the textbook as well as audioclips and activities and stuff.

You can take a screen shot with the Prt Sc button at the top of your keyboard. Then go into powerpoint and use the size editing tool... in Korean it is 크기 및위치 (Z) and adjust the sides to what you need. If you have 2007 or 2010 there is another resize tool on the top tool bar.

First time teaching these books. My first lessons with these didn't go as well as I planned.

Any tips on keeping the students engaged? (not the obvious ones like videos, games, etc)

I have some leeway on how I can teach this book, but I do need to do the listening part with the students.

@ Stamerjam

One way to keep students engaged is to change the format of the class.  If you move from large group to smaller groups or pairs throughout the class that helps.  Also many shorter activities tend to keep their attention.  Contests are also HUGE in Korea.  So even something like, who can finish the worksheet the fastest will keep their attention. 

I've had problems in the past with maintaining attention and besides videos and games, I was told to try these things.  Maybe even acting things out would be good... I'm horrible with doing TPR things myself but I try... =]

Oh and do the listening part yourself with different voices maybe, rather than the CD.  I hate using CDs for those things... =[

Hi! If your link in not working just search the topic name and you will be able to find it. The hyperlinks are broken for some reason.

Hi guys,

We're working on it! There were some changes made to the website which has caused to links to stop working. We have to go through all of them and fix them one by one. This obviously takes some time. If you can tell me which chapters are most relevant at the moment for you, I'll fix those asap and get to the other ones when I have time!

Sorry about this, but please know we're going as fast as we can ^^


**UPDATE** I fixed them all! It should be fine now ;D

Thank you for all the work! It's my first day and I'm trying to make some lesson plans based on this book. Do people usually use the CD-roms with their lessons?

You can. I hate it though. I absolutely hate it. So I teach as much as I can without it. This year I'm actually going to try to film all my dialogues (Part B: Listen) so I don't have to use the CD. It takes time, but it's less boring for me and the students.
