We asked the students for suggestions, asking these questions:
What was the most important thing you learned in the class?
How could we make the class better?
The students responded as follows, edited lightly for grammar and to make complete sentences:
The most important thing was playing fish chomp.
Teach us how to make a line fall from a ship and explode.
The most important thing was stuff, make the class better by doing stuff.
The students were less forthcoming with free-form comments than than in the first session.
The last day of class went pretty well. The simplified lesson plans used in this second series were easier to teach, and the students seemed to have an easier time.
We might introduce one multimedia element into the introductory class, either audio or still picture recording. If we do it, we should have enough recording devices for the whole class and have a plan to use the recordings in a specific way in the projects.
