Beginning Monday, September 25th, Seneca Language class will be made available each week on Monday and Wednesday evenings between 6pm and 8pm. Adults are the expected demographic for Wednesday nights as it coincides with the Youth Group time slot. This allows accommodation for adults while youth are occupied, giving more incentive for family attendance while diversifying available services. Monday night classes will therefore be designed for youth. However, both youth and adult classes will be beginner level. Both youth and adult classes will cover the same topics, with different forms of presentation.
An expected topic progression through the end of the year is outlined below:
|September 25th & 27th||Pronunciation and Greetings||Flash Cards|
|October 2nd & 4th||Greetings and Responses||Greetings Game|
|October 9th & 11th||Identity (Clans & Nations)||Identity Shield|
|October 16th & 18th||Family||Family Tree|
|October 23rd & 25th||Numbers/Time/Math||Clocks|
|October 30th & November 1st||Clothing & Colors||Matching Game|
|November 6th & 8th||Commands
|November 13th & 15th||Occupations||Go-Fish|
|November 20th & 22nd||Food & Harvest||Dinner Bracelets|
|November 27th & 29th||Locations||Memory|
|December 4th & 6th||Environment||Pictionary|
|December 11th & 13th||Time pt. 2: Days, Weeks, Months||Jeopardy (review)|
