The unit discusses the differences between authentic and created materials and why and when each should be used in a class. It also covers the advantages and disadvantages of using course books and the best ways to use a course book in your lessons.

My last unit helped explain and troubleshoot some potential problems that may arise in the classroom. One of the most interesting things i learned and will have to remember is staying on the students about always speaking in english during the classwork sections. This course has been very enjoyable. I believe it has given me the skills and knowledge i need to lead a classroom!In my opinion, the lesson is very useful because it teaches the most appropriate techniques to be used in classroom, it gives us new ideas to work with students, tips on what to do, the ways we should use to correct an error or a mistake and what materials we can use in the classes. For someone who has just begun teaching, the contents we have studied so far are really essential.
