I greatly enjoyed Unit #19, as it was very informative and practical in its application. The unit as a whole addressed some key areas that I've been concerned about, such as teaching beginners and teaching business English classes. The greatest take away for me from the teaching beginners section is that it's important to control my language, give clear and simple instructions, pace my sessions, and take control of my board work. All of those points are areas that I surmise I will initially have trouble with and will require a great deal of my awareness to ensure I'm providing a clear, concise, and quality lesson to students. I tend to talk rather quickly, and can overcomplicate my explanations at times; particularly with large words, so those areas will be a major focus for me. I also found the section on discipline invaluable because it's an area I've considered for quite some time. For instance, I often ask myself, "how should I respond when a child does _____?" In general, the best advice the chapter provided is to be well aware of the school's codes of conduct and to always default to the institution's policy. Otherwise, in the event that disciplinary action is beyond my authority, I should communicate with upper administration and leave it up to them to follow up with the parents. Alternatively, the section on teaching business English reminded me of some of the challenges I've envisioned when imagining myself teaching a business English class. Naturally, my first thought was "I don't know anything about business," but as the unit progressed, I realized that I have more to offer than I first thought. For instance, the unit suggested the use of authentic materials, which I happen to have a lot of after a couple of internships I completed. Those internships consisted of various written works, professional emails, reports, and general professional interactions. Should the opportunity arise, I feel that those examples will serve me well when faced with teaching business English to various clients. Otherwise, the rest of the content was quite straightforward, and somewhat matter of fact. Still, I found the entire chapter very helpful because it gave me some parameters and tools with which I can utilize in future classes.
