Blackboard design Self-reflection
This is a text referring to the low intermediate students, so it is not too difficulty for them to
understand it by them. Throughout the whole teaching process, I put listening, speaking, reading and writing into it, to make the class away from dull and monotonous situation. However, during the discuss process; I should let the whole class under my control, and to create a better atmosphere for the students to study. What's more, let the whole class instead of individual involved into my class is the most important thing to me.
