OK, I’ve read it. Now what? What you should do: Make note of vocabulary and grammar progression (A.K.A. What are they learning and when) and use it. Make note of what your JTE’s are teaching in solo class (if you share a textbook, this is crazy important). This way, you can tie in T.T. class with solo classes to try and make a more seamless curriculum Why? Consistent grammar and vocabulary in English classes makes English more manageable for students. They will remember more. And what’s more, they will see that the stuff they learn is USEFUL!!! (say what?)
