The unit discusses whether there is a need to plan lessons, how a lesson plan should be written and what should be included in a lesson plan. It also looks at ways to plan a sequence of lessons and how important it is for teachers to reflect on past lessons to help improve future classes.

It is pretty clear the students’ behavior during both lessons. They are confused and even intimidated by the way the teacher is acting in the first lesson. That is, of course, how we shouldn’t treat our students. And it is very interesting to see the change on the students’ attitude during the second lesson, how they interact and how interested they are.This unit is about how the teacher might organize the classroom and behave in the classroom in order to make the studying most productive. Some times the teacher needs more control and other times less. Many decisions about how to behave and organize activities and students depends on the characteristics of the space, the kinds of students, and the goals of the lesson.
