Some of the points that draw my attention regarding this unit and the videos are fundamentally related to the question of how does the teacher create a "good lesson" for his students? I distinguished and learned that four elements are of utmost importance (structure, variation, motivation, and discussion). Teachers are expected to explain what the students are supposed to do, how to do the task, use lists (1, 2, 3) on the board, come to class carefully prepared (students can see if a teacher is ready or not). More importantly, information must be written logically and clearly (as clothes in a closet.) When it comes to variation, the teacher needs to alternate different tasks during each lesson (reading, writing, speaking, listening). Do things in different ways, writing for instance (on a computer, by hand, mind maps, lists, long and short texts). And last but not least, using different kinds of materials, such as newspapers, books, films, and pictures. Dealing with the motivational part, the teacher needs to add engaging, funny, and reality-based activities to motivate the students better. Besides, The teacher's commitment to the subject is essential. It has to be seen that the teacher likes it (passionate.) Clarity is necessary before activating students; if students do not understand the task, confusion can prevail in the atmosphere. Lastly, one may come to meet up with the question of how should excellent discussions and conversations be? The answer to the question relies upon including everyone (every student should say something, participate, and be active) The teacher should lead the conversation and assign a conversational task in smaller groups, then in full class. Ultimately, a good teacher always adjusts himself/herself to the situation, smile, and laugh (if necessary) while of course respecting the opinions of others.
