TESOL Videos - Sweet Tooth - English Idioms
The idiom "sweet tooth" refers to having a strong liking for sweet foods, for example: It's difficult for me to lose weight because I have a sweet tooth.
This is what one of our TEFL graduates feels he has gained from the course, or a part of it, and how he plans to put into action what he has learned.
This unit features two lessons with the same teacher, students, and lesson. The first lesson is a class wherein the teacher did most of the talking and didn?t bother to make an effort for the students to really understand the lesson. He presented the lesson with no consideration of the student's learning. He just assumed that the students understood because for him, the lesson is very easy. His attitude during the class produced negative effect on the students. In the second lesson, the teacher used a well-prepared ESA lesson which made the lesson easier to understand for the students and encouraged them to participate. This, along with the teacher?s positive attitude and teaching techniques, using sufficient amount of visuals, mimes/actions and clear/simple language, well-instructed activities, made the class an effective one. Teacher?s attitude in the class and student?s reaction is a big factor for the success of the lesson. The students in the first lesson were intimidated by the teacher, confused with the lesson, afraid to participate since the teacher didn't react well to wrong answers, which resulted to very little student talk time. But the students in the second lesson were happy, comfortable and unafraid to say something in class, which resulted to high talk time. This made the second video more effective. As a teacher, to be able to produce a successful lesson, I should consider not only the lesson point but how I will go about the whole process, most especially how it will affect the learning of my students.
