My Best Teaching Is One-on-One


Of course, I team teach and do special lessons, etc.


But my best work in the classroom is after the lesson is over --
going one-on-one,
helping individual students with their assignments.


It's kind of like with computer programs, walking the client through hands-on.
The job isn't really done until the customer is using the program.

Go Fish -- ゴー・フィッシュ

This is the standard game, as I understand it. Some variations noted below.


Object: To collect pairs of cards by asking other players for cards that match those in your hand.

目的: 自分の手札にあるカードに相当するカードを相手に頼んだりして、2枚ペア組んで集めていく。

Number of players: Two to six.

プレーヤの人数: 2人~6人

Use: A standard deck of playing cards.

遊具: 普通のカードデッキ(トランプ)

Setup -- 用意 :

The dealer shuffles the deck and deals seven cards, face-down so that others can't see them, to each player. The remaining cards are placed in a draw pile where all the players can reach them. (You can call the draw pile the lake or the sea.)


Each player looks for any pairs in his hand and places them face up in front of him.


Basic play -- 基本的な遊び方 :

The player to the left of the dealer starts.


On a players turn, he chooses a card in his hand and chooses another player to ask for its match.


If the other player has the match, he gives it to him. If not, he says, "Go fish." and the player whose turn it is draws a card from the draw pile.


If the player gets a match, whether by asking or by drawing, he places the pair in front of him. Further, if the match was the card asked for, whether by asking or by drawing, he may play again. 


If the player did not get a match, or got a match but not the card asked for, turn proceeds to the left.


The game ends when any one player has no cards left in his hand, to play.


The player who has collected the most pairs wins.


(Four o'clock in the morning, variations will have to be done later.)
