Straightforward methodology

Three main categories of learning outcomes were pursued, including skills, knowledge and values/attitudes. At the end of each lesson a check was made to ensure that each of the three had been addressed well. Knowledge and skills were actively used in context. Lessons were often introduced by a story or discussion, and exercises were evaluated by encouraging feedback. Group work was used for building words and eventually writing sentences, describing the events in pictures and encouraging free thinking about such topics as home industries, domestic violence and substance abuse. Self-motivation was encouraged.
