The observed teacher had one year's experience working with ESOL students but had about four years of experience as an English tutor working for private language schools in Asia and Europe.Activities, interaction and materials usedThe lesson began with a recap of the previous week's content and the teacher asked questions such as, "What is the day today?" and gave some help, "Monday, Tuesday…?" and then "What is the day tomorrow?" The teacher selected individual students to answer and then gestured to some of them to come up to the board and write down their answers. Some students wrote with capitals and some with lower case. The teacher looked at the other students and said, "ok?" which meant that peers were asked to review and correct the spelling if necessary, the teacher then corrected any remaining mistakes.The next activity was also a recap. The teacher showed the students self-made flashcards of a morning, an afternoon and an evening.

This is a clever technique as it is likely to make more people want to donate to the charity. This concludes my analysis and comments on hard-hitting advertisements.
