Gerunds are not parts of grammar I was familiar with. Therefore, it helped reading about those as well as the different types of adjectives. Yes, I knew about larger and largest but never thought of them as comparative or superlative. This lesson definitely helped with this.I got insight from unit 1.When I learned about teachers' roles, I want to add how to deal the student's mistakes in appropriate way by regarding the student's emotions.Another thing is that I came to know the names of the teacher's roles and the range of the student's levels.This unit discussed white boards OHP's and different kinds of equipment and visual aids a teacher might have at there disposal and effective ways to use them in the classroom. I was also given a useful list of online resources from CALL to aid the teacher and students in class.
