This unit concisely discussed the different techniques in teaching vocabulary, grammatical structures, and language functions. I have learned about the ESA methods which can be applied in teaching. These are the straight-arrow, boomerang, and patchwork structure. There are many ways to teach, but an effective teacher knows which approach is appropriate for the class.I learned about the different teaching equipment tools a teacher could use in the class. This will be very useful in the future for me. It is also good to know how to write correctly on a white board so that it can be used effectively. I would be very interested in trying to use a smart board, that was before my time in school. It was the first time I heard about it.
