I learned how to lead a classroom management skills from this unit. and eye contact, gesture and the voice and other types of positions helped a lot. I learned how to avoid TTT(teacher talking time)and STT(student taking time)skill to the levels of students. I will apply the skills I learned through this unit to my class. Thank you very much.This unit definitely was tougher compared to the present and past tenses. The qualities that separate the nuances seemed minute at first and blend together somewhat. I've got a better appreciation for the future tenses I don't normally use though it'll still take some practice to consciously and subconsciously differentiate them in real life.
