Default 3-day camp layout: Advice?

I am developing a 2night/3day camp for ELLs in South Korea. I would love to get some feedback from you guys. Here is a picture of the proposed outline.

I am sure you'll notice the pattern of the schedule. E.G. needing one thing before discussing the other.

Thoughts? I am going to develop the materials soon.

Hello, TME!

It's hard for me to guess the level of the students based on the materials. I mean, there's a unit on subject/verb agreement, which I think of as being pretty basic, and it's followed by a lesson on adjectives/adverbs. . . which I think is considerably more advanced. (Especially adverbs.)

Is the whole camp basically a review?

Another point: I'm guessing that 'authentic materials' is the term for 'reading a magazine article' or something of the like. I'm not opposed to it, but I think something like that could be homework. . . I'd say take the classroom time to have them do something--play a game, or complete a task--in English, where they'd have to use their English actively.

Lastly, I'm a big fan of teaching interrogatives early, because you'll be reviewing how to ask questions through the rest of the camp, assuming they have they have to ask what questions they have in English.

Hope that was helpful,
-Toby

Hi Toby,

Thanks for the input. Unfortunately, the camps attendees' levels is unknown and it will be like that until they get here. I had to keep it general in order to give instructors the flexibility they'll need in order to get the job done as best as possible. I like your idea about the interrogatives; I may end up using that. Thanks!

Ralph
