Structure of the class:

What technology, media or props did you use?

  • Handout

What worked well in this class? What did not work?

  • Students talk a lot and they learn to bargain with salesperson to try to reach a good price for the items in the handout.

How could this class be improved/ modified?

  • A better way of introducing vocabulary is needed. Introducing the vocabulary by the teacher incurs too much teacher talk. Maybe students can introduce vocabulary next time.
