By Rick Kappra | City College of San Francisco | 2017
Rick has been teaching English as a Second language since 1983, beginning as a volunteer working with refugees in Philadelphia. He has taught in Japan, Taiwan, Singapore and Korea. Currently he is an ESL instructor at City College of San Francisco, where he is also the Civic Center Campus ESL Coordinator. His goal as an instructor is to create more opportunities for students to engage with one another in fun, meaningful exchanges. Finding that most ESL textbooks did not provide enough opportunities for interaction led him to co-author Out & Aboutwith Amy Hemmert. Rick and Amy also co-authored Out & About Teacherless Activities (Photocopiable Teacher Resource Book)- one of ALTA's best-selling resources for beginning ESL classes. Out & About, Rick Kappra, Teacherless Activities Thanks for sharing, Rick. Looking forward to seeing your presentation at Tech Camp!! Thanks for sharing Rick!

Then one sleepy morning, at a CATESOL conference in Pasadena, I'm on my way to an early workshop, and among the sparse passersby, I see this guy sauntering towards me. As his face comes into focus, I realize it's Rick!
Over lunch that afternoon, he tells me how much he likes Communicating on Campus, which Ged O-Connell and I had written for intermediate- and advanced-level students. He's excited because the "teacherless activities" like information gaps and jigsaw activities that we include in the book are similar to the materials he's creating for his beginning-level students as an integral part of his course, not as supplemental activities requiring extra work. Rick and I both love teaching level 1 classes. Students at this level progress so quickly that you get immediate gratification. Also, they come to class with so little that they tend to be especially appreciative and aware of how much they're learning. Alta: Can you talk a bit about inclusivity in the Out & About series? Amy: Yes, Rick and I are fully committed to celebrating and respecting all learners in the classroom, including LGBTQI students. Following our lunch at the CATESOL conference in Pasadena, I attended Rick's presentation on inclusivity for LGBTQI students and was immediately inspired and committed to creating the type of materials that Rick was advocating.

Posted by Rick Kappra ALTA English Blog, Low-level classes, Rick Kappra, Teacherless Activities Teacherless Activity #2: "Mingles" By Rick Kappra My journey into the world of teacherless activities really began when I discovered the mingle. A dear colleague of mine who I taught with at UC Berkeley Extension suggested I do a "mix and mingle" in one lower-level class I was struggling with. She had an activity that she did which involved some sort of "mix and mingle" dialogue. I never really understood what that was, but from her suggestion, I started using a simple mingle activity where I had students get up and ask one another a list of questions that practiced the language we were focusing on in the class - it worked great and the mood in the class improved dramatically.
