THE CASEA young teacher of the English languagein 5th grade is very enthusiastic aboutteaching.He likes to give various tasks to hisstudents, and always helps students toaccomplish them during the lesson.
THE CASEHe gives home task usually already in theend of the lesson, when the bell is ringing.Sometimes he doesn’t even say it aloud,just writes down on the blackboard.In the textbook all the tasks are explainedin English, and sometimes students can’tfully understand them.
THE CASESome students do the task not the way theteacher was expecting them to do it, andsome other students don’t do the task at allbecause they don’t know how and think theywill do it wrong anyway.Though, there are students who cope withhome tasks well. The teacher wonders whysome of his students are so active andsuccessful during lessons, but havedifficulties with doing their home task.
