aI believe all teachers should be willing to expand educational experiences thro

ugh Developing unit objectives and lesson plans for target language, conducting
advanced classes, Implementing activities that promote learning language in cont
ext. Therefore, if a teacher is willing to create thought provoking lessons that
challenge all students, there really should be constructed lesson plans with s
tudent centered, activities that promote cooperative learning and engage all stu
dents, as well as, present authentic cultural materials to research and introduc
e culture. Lastly all teachers should be willing to constantly be upgrading thei
r knowledge because we are learners too.a
