Unit 6 covers past verb tenses, and I learned the past simple, past continuous, past perfect, and past perfect continuous tenses. Each form and its affirmative, negative, and question variants are covered along with proper uses and common student errors. After learning about the past tenses, I feel I have a better understanding of present tenses and why students are so susceptible to making mistakes with verb tense in general. Keeping this idea in mind while creating lessons to allow students to practice verb tense is key, and I have learned several examples from this unit.
