Wow, this is a new site for me!
Thanks for the suggestion.:))
Evening lessons I know can be hard having seen a couple of tough ones with studenst who clearly would have prefered to be elsewhere! One teacher I saw used a puzzle game which had lots of coloured pictures and images. Mainly missing parts, spot the difference, odd-one-out, questions did not require much written work. Some were humorous but all were quite easy so that students felt they were doing well. Not really set as a competition, all students wanted to know how they had done compared to the rest of the group.
It seemed to get the class much better engaged than the previous week when they were tight for time and working to finish an assigment they were clearly time pressured on with no chance for a fun type warm up.
Maybe classical music could help? I always listen to Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 when struggling with writing a paper after a long day. A lot of classical music is very bombastic and powerful, but at the same time soothing.
