This unit was one of the more challenging ones. It dealt with modal verbs, transitive and intransitive verbs. It also addressed the use of he passive voice. This part of grammar I usually find difficult. I found the charts beneficial, but still find that I will have to study this particular part of grammar to feel completely comfortable with it.This unit was very good in the sense that it creates more ways for teachers to engage students in a lesson. I particularly like the use of games as a component of a lesson plan to really motivate students to learn. It is important that a teacher consistently be looking for new ideas to make learning interesting and I think this unit does that.
