I've never learned about what a good teacher is and their various jobs. I was always in the position of \"learner\" and learning about what a good teacher is quiet interesting and makes me more excited as I step my first step of becoming a teacher. This lesson makes me think about what kind of teacher I should be and also what kind of students I want to teach in the future.Unit 14 was about course books and lesson materials. A teacher can either use a coursebook or they can create materials. There are two types of materials that can be created, authentic and created materials. Authentic materials are things that the native speaker would encounter in their home country. The created materials are things like crossword puzzles and word searches.
