It was so helpful to see the two different lessons, especially to see the different concepts covered in the course up to now in practice. The first video showed that you can get some language learning across even with poor teaching technique, but it is not much and may not be lasting. With a different classroom attitude and better explanations, the teacher in the first video could have had a better outcome even using some of the same techniques, such as the use of visuals and even the game he used in the final Activate stage. In fact, the second lesson could be improved with the use of more visuals -- pictures, drawings, etc. -- although he did make effective use of realia for the restaurant example (to elicit the concept of "have to"). The final game in video 1 was creative, but suffered from not having taught the concepts better prior to starting the game, and from being poorly explained/organized. One of the things I most appreciate about seeing the videos -- especially video 2 -- is seeing how simple each stage of the lesson can be, and in fact, how simpler is better. It helped clarify how an Engage stage can be structured to see what students know without directly focusing on the material that is yet to be taught. The teacher set up a structure where the new material was visible and part of the exercise, but the elements the students were asked to provide were already known to them. The teacher also did a nice job on gradually adding new elements, to set up the exercise for eliciting the contrasting form ("have to" vs "can")
