What went well?
In general, the class developed well and actively, Ss were
motivated, participated in class and tried to convey their
ideas despite not mastering the language. The attention
getter that I introduced worked perfectly. I think that
adding and adapting some activities from the coursebook
allowed the class to be more dynamic and attractive for
my learners.
What didn’t go well?
I notice that most of my students needed to develop their
reading skills, especially in reading comprehension.
During the class, they spent much more of the time
programmed in the detailed reading despite having
divided the text into sections and pre teaching
vocabulary, for this reason it was very difficult to follow
the planed times. However, I tried to be flexible with the
plan and support them more during the activity. I used

How can you improve the way
To improve the adaptation of the material I will consider
you adapt coursebook material
taking an original activity and adapted or add something
for future lessons?
to it so that it can be more motivating and more
communicative whilst still maintaining its aim. Sometimes,
I can keep the activity but just change the format.
Also, I could read the book How to Teach English by
Jeremy Harmer, which explains about some options and
reasons for coursebook use, how to adapt, add and
replace activities, and how to choose suitable
coursebooks for learners.
