This unit is very useful for those of us with no teaching experience. It helps with starting to build particular mindset required for teaching and definitely will prove to be very helpful in the future. This is the lesson I'm sure I will be coming back to once I start teaching.This unit about lesson planning is very well detailed and explained. We are given the keys to prepare a clear and very good lesson, we are not forced to be extremely rigid about it, we may even deviate from the main course but it gives a line of thought or a map road to follow.this unit really hard for me im sitting here a long time and really hope im gonna pass. i read it so many times over days but some answers i coulnd find. Same with the ESA i really really hope its correct. if im not gonna pass this test i think i woulndt be able to pass at all.
