Compare and contrast the expressions that could be used for teaching groups and individuals. Use your own examples and expressions to support your writing.

Assignment Overview
In spite of numerous classroom English expressions that could be used in class, teachers are limited to using them when working with different groups. Often times, teachers have to conduct activities with groups and individuals separately. Your task is to write one to two pages of writing explaining the similarities and differences between the expressions that could be used for teaching groups and individuals. You may use your own examples and expressions to support your writing.

The interaction seemed informal because of the joking and laughter that occurred, also because the interaction was with children, so you couldn’t be professional and formal; to keep children interested the teachers have to make the activities seem fun.
