Classroom Observation # 2: Attending to the Learner

This is my second observation of a secondary school EFL class. This time I've focused on the different strategies a teacher has in order to relate to his/her students. If we consider learning & teaching in a classroom as a truly communicative and human endeavour, these skills become an integral part of our work. They are (or should be!) realistic, genuine, and meaningful because they resemble real-life interactions. Eager to hear your views on this!
