We started by going over a book list that the student asked me to bring. It was a list of American literature (all fiction) which will guide them through sorting classic American literature and will help their reading skills. Then we reviewed a New York Times op-ed about the political implications of affirmative action as it relates to higher education. We mainly focused on pronunciation, as well as learning some new words in the article. Both students read it out loud to me and then we talked about intonation, pitch and rhythm. After going over some grammar and differences between conversational English and written English, I provided the students with another op-ed piece that they could review together before next week's session.
