One tip is to play Simon says. you tell them, “Simon says do a pirouette.” and they copy. but if you don’t say Simon Say’s and they copy their out. this turns learning into a game. also, remember that these girls are really young and that they get tired really easily. don’t get frustrated if they take to many breaks or aren’t listening to you. hope it helps!

Teaching 10th graders Russian Culture?

Question by Caniodenna: Teaching 10th graders Russian Culture?
I’ve started teaching at a Saturday Russian School (I’m 20). The 10th grade is comprised of 14-16 year old, and I was selected to teach them Russian Culture. I figured to teach them some artists and display art, maybe watch a few operas, ballets, composers and their music. For an exam, each student will pick any topic we went over, and write a more detailed report on it (about 3-5 pages, I think). Does anyone have any tips on making the class better? Such as, would my topics stated above be good enough? I don’t want it to be EXTREMELY difficult, since 10th grade is the last year, and they should focus more on the Russian Language, which is always the most difficult class, but it should be good enough so that they actually retain something. Any help is greatly appreciated!
