It is important for a teacher to know the difference between a good ESA lesson and a bad ESA lesson. As a teacher, it is very important to use the correct lesson structures (straight arrow, boomerang etc.)for the correct situations. It is also important that the teacher has the correct attitude coming into a lesson as it affects student behaviour.In this lesson we learned about how to address and different ways to handle different difficulties or differences that may arise in the classroom. It is important to be aware of these strategies because not every class group will be perfect and flawless, so we need to know how to calibrate our teaching to fit the needs of the students effectively.
