OTP English Lesson - Richard - Engage Phase - What can you do?

 

"In this video, our OTP trainee Richard introduces the topic ""can"". It is one of the most commonly used modal verbs in English. He starts the lesson by getting the students thinking and talking in English by saying things that they can do. ITTT's Observed Teaching Practice courses (OTP) are ideal for teachers wanting to improve their teaching skills remotely from anywhere in the world."

This was one of the easier lessons for me so far. I really liked getting more ideas for lessons about each type of past tense form, such as doing interview role play or a detective game. The verb charts may be useful as a guide for students, as they all come naturally to me at this point. The lesson provided some good, simple ways to explain each verb construction.In this, the fourth unit i was taught about mistakes, errors and ways of teaching. all of this was brand new to me and i appreciated learning most about the difference between mistakes and errors. i wasn't aware that mistakes were just usually a slip of the tongue and that errors are more of a deeply ingrained issue. this will definitely help out when I'm teaching.
