Coarse books and material aids for teaching are teachers best friend to encourage students to have fun learning English. Authentic materials are interesting, motivating, and the students will gain confidence once they learn them. Created materials are practically for beginner or less creative teachers like me. Using coarse books, the teacher can omit,replace, supplement, and adapt materials to suit her teaching objectives.This unit looks at some of the principles of classroom management, such as establishing rapport, motivating students, organizing the room and maintaining discipline. As an experienced classroom teacher most of it was rather self-evident, but I am sure it would be useful for new teachers. In any case, it is always good to review good teaching practice and have the opportunity to pause and re-evaluate my own teaching style.
