In this unit, i was able to learn ,how to teach my students the different skills in english such as reading,listening ,speaking and writing in a lesson ,while maintaining the balance.And also how to get all the students interested and involve in the lesson with detail understanding.This unit was interesting. I thought the actual examples of the teacher in the lesson was a great way to express the concept of this lesson. It was difficult to watch the first teacher in the lesson because he was ill-prepared. This is a great template to return to in the future.Short, simple and sometimes not typical observation of past tenses with a focus given directly to grammatical structures which are not most commonly used . In this unit we see clear definition of both form and meaning that makes the understanding (or even revision) 100% successfull.
