4 Results of the Questionnaire Students like (some) of the topics on the bookActivities in the book promote (enough) S-S interactionThe target vocabulary found in the lessons is (frequently) used in real life.The activities in the books (sometimes) apply Bloom’s Taxonomy (critical thinking)The presentation stage (lesson plan) consists of the teaching of (both skills and grammar)The enabling objectives (often) lead to the terminal objective.The activities in the book are (often) relevant to achieve the terminal objective.The activities in the book are (sometimes0 systematic to achieve the terminal objectiveIt’s (considerably) easy to manage the ET students.The topics (sometimes) reflect students’ needs and world views.
5 Problems of Handling ET Books Too many activities/exercises, but not enough time (sessions) to cover them all.Too many materials to deal with, so the room for modification is limited.Mismatch between objective and type of assessmentNo highlighted presentation part to help students understand betterThe exercises cannot meet the objective.
6 Possible SolutionsSkip some activities or have students do the activities at homeOmit 1-2 exercises which are considered less important or somehow are not related to the objectiveCreate my own assessment that suits the objective or the other way around.Explain it by writing it on the board.Keep on trying to SOAR and think about the rest later.
