This unit describes what authentic materials are versus created materials and the advantages of each, explains what set of materials course books often consist of along with the advantages and disadvantages of course books, and posits what the best uses for course books are and the different ways a teacher can use them. Overall, I learned that, even when considering their disadvantages, the advantages of course books and the materials that often come with them can greatly benefit a teacher and her students, particularly if the teacher is critical of the course book and omits, replaces, supplements, or adapts the material so that the students remain engaged and interested and continue to learn relevant information that complements their level of English.
