Teaching place, eye contact and body language are the most important points of teaching. Wediscussed this week about them from different perspectives. If we plant our feet in one place duringthe whole lesson, if we dont look into each of our ss, and if we dont use any body language, then weare not a teacher but a person who is talking to themselves. We also talked about making ss useEnglish and their learning. For instance, to keep them spaeking English, we collect lots of ideas fromeach other. Some of them are;T should behave as if s/he is deaf when ss speak in Turkish.T should ignore the mistakes to encourage them to speak English.T shouldnt make fun of them.To play enjoyable games, andTo understand each other better, T should use body language with the sentences in English (e.g. : when saying open the door, s/he shows this opening the door.)We played silent movie, also called charades, to examine body language. It was really funny. I cannotuse my body language so often, but I learnt many expressions, at least I can use them any more.Classroom management is another important issue for this week. We can divide it into two asclassroom itself and the teacher. Comfort, light, sight, sound, seating arrangements, equipment andblackboard use are physical elements. Voice, giving instructions, body language are about theteacher.These physical elements are related to classroom energy. If everything is OK, class is ready to thelesson. But if there is a problem among the ss, if T cannot reach all the ss, if there is noise comingfrom the outside, or if material cannot be seen by all the students, teaching and learning atmosphereare effected negatively. The same as the physical arrangement, if T speaks with the voicecontinuously up and down which irritates ss, again these effects learning negatively. And of courseyour face.. It should reflect optimism and brightness. And giving instructions, we should articulateclearly and check the instructions.And we also talked about the unexpected situations during the class. We discussed someunplanned events. We get some solutions. One is that honesty is the best policy. Another and mostvalid solution is that one extra activity must be in our pocket, calle B PLAN
 I should pay attention to the body language. I hope I will be effective by using it. I hope
Alsowhatever mistakes ss do, I never criticise and make fun of them. I love them
