I learned a lot about what to avoid when managing the classroom such as how to arrange desks and conduct myself during certain activities. This unit taught me a lot about how to increase the effectiveness of class time and techniques for increasing rapport. I found it helpful because I got to learn about pros and cons for specific classroom arrangements and group set ups.I feel that this lesson had been particularly useful for me, given that I have never been given the chance to teach in an open classroom. It highlights certain points of note, such as the methods of building rapport (Allowing students to correct each other) and the arrangement of seating (Most of which is uncommon in my youth) which I foresee would be of use when I teach.
