Variety Flexibility



Clear aims: the realistic goals for the lesson

Variety: different types of activities and a wide selection of materials.

B. Preparing some extra and alternative tasks and activities so that teachers always have the options to cope with unexpected situations rather than being the slaves of written.

Learnability :
Contents and tasks should be within the Ss’ learning capability.

The stages and the steps should be linked with one another, transit smoothly

A plan is just a plan.

Things often do not happen according to our plan no matter how experienced we are.
Good teachers should be flexible and respond creatively to what happens in the classroom.
