When I look back at the past 10 weeks, I can't find just one word to describe the journey.
I believe our friend Rick Monteiro is the one who defines it in the best way.
You can all remember the first posts and comments.
We were all a little scared to face the monster. Nobody knew what to expect.
And yet we all survived.
Now we roam free through the dark alleys of the web.
Discovering new paths and toys to play with.
And we aren't scared to try anymore.
And that's the most important thing, at least for me.
Therefore, we can't call this a graduation.
Maybe we should call it initiation.
The journey doesn't end here. On the contrary, my friends.
This course was merely the doorway, the entrance, the first step.
The rest of the journey will be up to us!
Good luck to you all!
Don't become strangers.
See you around!

I have a "Prime 3" group in Asa Sul. We have just started a lesson on animals. What we could do is ask each student to post a picture of their pets. Everyone could comment on them.
Besides that, we could start a discussion on animal treatment.
Who knows? Maybe even compare the treatment pets receive at home with the treatment animals at the zoo receive.
Ultimately, the students would be able to practice the vocabulary of the lesson, as well as the intended grammar.

This is the week 7 task: Where are you now?
When the picture was taken, I was finishing yet another hard day of work.
But that's ok!
Only 81 days to go for my vacations!
PS. the photo was taken by Mr. Photographer Luiz Claudio!

It isn't only about what the teacher has to say, or how he/she will evaluate you.
Assessment comes from your peers, how they will interact with you,
what your posts will mean to them....
It's about action and reaction.
Sounds like physics, eh?
