Organizing lesson plans is a delicate and fairly complicated process whereby the instructor must provide a thoughtful structure to a lesson, while including features that keep students interested and engaged. How much structure do we put into our lessons versus encouraging students to take a leading role in their education? I think that's the main challenge of creating lesson plans.I will encourage students to study basic grammar. After they have a basic understanding, they can pay attention whenever they hear or read English.I do not want them to get caught up with grammar too much. Asian students tend to focus on grammar way too much whenever they try to speak English they tend to be nervous and awkward because they will be afraid of making grammar mistakes.
