I will be using Schoology to teach my Cebuano lessons. I think Schoology is a great tool because my students will be able to access the Cebuano lessons online. The students will be able to access the links to my blog that contains the Cebuano lessons and download Word Documents that contains more Cebuano lessons that the students can then download. I will also be creating video tutorials on how to speak Cebuano and those links will be posted in Schoology. After the Cebuano lessons my students will be quizzed. You can make a quiz within Schoology and give the students grades that the students can see in their student version Schoology account.
Farmville 2 is one of my favorite games. It is an easy game, but it is fun and you do learn things about farming like the different crops there are to plant. For example, I did not know what an Indian Lotus was until I played FarmVille 2 and saw it was one of the crops I could plant.
Currently, I am designing a Cebuano lesson plan and would like to include games. I have decided to design a game that would be similar to FarmVille 2. The only difference between FarmVille 2 and my game is that the students plant Filipino crops, fruits, trees, and flowers.
The Filipino Farm game I am designing will not only teach the Filipino students about the different plants there are in the Philippines, but also the Filipino names for the plants. For example, jackfruit in the Philippines is called langka and squashes are called calabasa. When teaching students about a language like Cebuano it is important the students know the different plants there are in the Philippines because lots of plants that are popular in the Philippines are not popular in America. For example, if the students go to the Philippines they will not know what a rambutan is unless it is taught to them because typically there are no rambutan being sold in American grocery stores.

In the past I was a waitress for Plum House in Eastview Mall. It was a Japanese restaurant and it was my first waitressing job. Plum House used the Micros system to help the servers enter the orders into the computer. Once the order was entered a piece of paper would then print out in the kitchen for the chef to see. Once the chef sees the order the chef would then cook the food and the waitress would then bring out the food to the customer‘s table. After the customer has eaten the Micros system is used to process the payment.
I have decided I would like to create a lesson plan on teaching students Cebuano. This lesson plan would include teaching the students Cebuano vocabulary, greetings, and basic Cebuano conversational dialogues. I would also like to teach the students the different drinks and foods while playing the computer game I have designed that is based on the Micros system.
The plan for the game Chow Queen:
