Here Below you can check out the feedback (for one of our units) of one of the 16.000 students that last year took an online course with ITTT!
This unit provides two different lessons based around the same topic (modal auxiliary verbs) but taught in very different ways, with the teacher adopting different attitudes, techniques, etc. in each class. This demonstrated what effects these different techniques/attitudes can have on the effectiveness of the lesson, student participation and so on, with the second lesson clearly being much more effective than the first. The content of this unit was very interesting for me as it gives the opportunity to not only observe two very different classes, but also provides real examples of some of the ideas and techniques talked about in previous units: the ESA lesson structure, elicitation techniques, how to conduct activities, etc. Of particular interest to me was the manner which the teacher adopted in both classes and how he would ensure full class participation (in the second class). This is something I find more challenging in my larger school classes and would like to improve upon. The lesson illustrates a very good way to help ensure full participation: asking students to say how other students have answered a question (e.g. "[student's name], what can't [another student] do at work?"). I will make an effort to introduce this kind of engagement in my future classes. The video lessons also clearly show the difference in student participation due to the teacher's attitude - the first lesson was rather difficult to watch, as the students evidently were left confused and often put down by the teacher! I always try to maintain a positive attitude in my classes and heavily encourage my students to answer, even those who struggle, and this lesson reinforces just how important that is.
