unit 17 was focused on equipment and teaching aids, every good teacher I know has a variety of strategies they use to keep the attention of their students. To stand and lecture to the class is not always an effective way to reach all your students, breaking up the monotony and using different media is a great way to enhance the learning experience.Is is absolutely true that the choice of course books is not a simple issue. As explained in this unit, I agree that we should approach the available lesson materials critically and consider if they are suited to the needs of the students. I think that it is crucial to consider the teaching objectives and to adapt all materials for the best result.
