A few months ago we had fun building our dream clubhouse
. The writers were so creative I thought it would be fun to build our dream English school
Are you currently attending an English school? Have you attended one in the past? Think about what you liked and what you didn't like. What would you do differently if you owned the school? What would your English school look like if you had all of the money in the world? How would it operate? This school could open in the future, when technology and travel were even more advanced than they are today. Here are some things to think about:
The extra curricular activities
The subject matter
The class size
The class length
The class demographics
1. Create a post on your own MyEC blog called "Writing Challenge #12: My Dream English School"
(Thank you to last month's participants for starting this submission trend! It was a great idea to have the stories on your blogs instead of in the comments.). At the end of your post write this question for readers: "Would you go to my school? Why or why not?"
2. Come back to this page and provide a link to your dream school post in the comment section. (Click on the icon that looks like a chain. Insert the url from your own blog post. Let me know if you have any problems.)
3. Visit other "Dream School" posts by members and answer their question: Would you go to their school? Why or why not?
My dream English school would be located in New Mexico. I have never been to New Mexico, but I hear it is an inspiring place for writers. There would be fresh coffee beans in each classroom (and a place to store chocolate
). The teachers would be allowed to wear jeans to school. Each class would have a maximum of six students and we would all sit on bean bag chairs near a big window. Much of the classroom work would take place outside of the classroom, in local art galleries, cafes, and parks. School would start around ten in the morning and end around two. Students would take turns bringing in food from their native countries to share for lunch and snack time. Yum! We wouldn't use many textbooks, but we would do lots of reading, writing, and sharing together. Once a week we would Skype with another English class from a different part of the world.
Would you come to my school? Why or why not?
