It was critical for me to see these videos. I now understand how to structure my class. I have a clear understanding of how to engage the students and i look forward to building my own style. The second class looked fun. The first class was hard to finish watching. I think I will use a straight arrow ESA approach. It seems to flow very nicely, granted I was correct in that the second class was straight arrow.The teacher needs to expose the students to the new language, help students understand the meaning, as well as help them understand how it is constructed and be able to practice and produce the new language. The students should be introduced to the language in a balanced and manageable way as stated in the class notes. The different lesson plans can be used to teach namely, boomerang, patchwork, and straight arrow.
