This unit encompassed information on teaching new language. It focused on three main areas: teaching vocabulary; teaching grammatical structures; and teaching language functions. Each sub-chapter gave examples, also, of which teaching approaches work best for that particular aspect of language. The chapter reiterated a lot of the material that had been given to us in chapter 3: namely, theories, methods, and techniques with emphasis on the ESA method and its take-offs. These included the boomerang method and the patchwork method. It gave suggestions as to which methods/ approaches work best for the teaching of vocabulary, grammar and functions. Some of the strict usages of items -- such as using brochures [given in the test above] -- seem a bit stilted and arbitrary to me: I can envision scenarios where I could use a brochure and elicitation in parts of my lesson that are not necessarily in the first phase [E] of that lesson. Similarly, although the above test puts 'role-play' only into the category of the 'activate' stage, there are exercises and possibly also allusions [ in the older videos and past units] to the ability to use role-play not just as an activate stage tool. All in all, a pretty straight forward chapter and again, the videos are very helpful in seeing all the material put into real teaching contexts with the corresponding realia. Thank you!
