We’re doing presentations in class today and since the lesson from the textbook was instructions, I had the students write a simple recipe in English, then present it in front of class with some sort of visual — poster, PowerPoint, etc.
Did I know that some of the groups would consist of only boys?
Was I worried about it?
After one class, a JTE said to me: “There were many PowerPoints in that class.”
“Yes,” I answered.
“I suppose there were more boys who do them for science class.”
“Oh, PowerPoint presentations? That makes sense.”
“And boys don’t cook.”
I guess they’ll be eating a lot of ramen when they get to university…
