It is crucial that teachers are aware of what is happening and educate themselves in how to reach a student. Children are similar but different at the same time. Students learn in many different ways like for example observing, listening, demonstration, speaking and etc.
It hampers development of ideas and impedes growth. "The quality of relationship among teachers is strongly related to implementation" (p. 77). It is also important that there be "teacher participation in decisions concerning project operations and modifications" (Berman & McLaughlin, 1980, p . 9). This means that teachers have to be involved and their ideas heard to ensure ownership of the project, "the staff were more likely to invest the considerable energy needed to make the project work.
The group dynamics are just as important as the teacher. The students need to bond and develop positive relationships together in a spirit of learning. Activities in the Classroom Traditional textbook based teaching may not be effective to promote an environment of oral practice. Where students have to attend classes repeatedly throughout the day it can be exhausting to just sit and listen to the teacher. The teacher needs to bring a creative approach to the material.
Thus, textbooks will always fulfill the required needs. Textbooks are considered for both teachers and students as ‘the visible heart of any ELT program’ (Sheldon, 1988-237). Sheldon (1988) proposed the three main reasons that why the textbooks are so heavily utilized? • Firstly, nearly all the classroom teachers find developing their own classroom materials an extremely difficult and laborious task. • Secondly, teachers have limited time in which to develop new materials due to the nature of their profession.
Teachers should provide direct instructions in different skill areas not within the general curriculum. These include time concepts, self-care and hygiene, money concepts, leisure activities, independent living skills, vocational training and community access. Schools should offer supplementary aids and services such as equipment, personnel and other accommodations that facilitate learning. Create time and resources for extra learning hours but subsidize the costs of additional educators or learning
Introduction Education plays an important role in producing high quality of students to develop students’ abilities in many aspects based on 21st century. To successfully prepare high quality of students, teacher needs to know ways to achieve it. One of the ways to achieve it is by knowing the important of having suitable teaching aids for the teachers to teach in the classroom. According to (Akram & Malik, 2012) teaching aids that are widely used by teachers, guide, facilitators and tutors to complement their words that ultimately helps learner to improve learning and to stay focused, clear and curious always.

Now resources found in many classrooms rely upon a different set up where the chalkboard many be a whiteboard but the classroom shifts according to the needs of the activity. No longer is the activity based upon lecturing and having the teacher recite, institute repetitive exercises but interactions are based upon use of media both within the board but also in the physical world. Access to different resources like a mix of sensory layers also appeals to the learner’s sense of curiosity that contributes to his or her sense of creativity. In this way, resources in the infinite possibilities remain important for the educator to not only use as a tool or prop but to use as a means to form bonds with the student’s environment. The job of the resource is to open the door to learning with respect to how the educator able to blend different types of learning styles that meet the needs of learners regardless of what type of learner they may be or what stage of learning process they are at.
It is imperative to prepare the instructional materials in advance of the learning activity when instruction is imparted in Distance education mode. Indeed the quality of the teaching and learning process in Distance Education is dependent on the quality of the Self-Instructional Study Material. Distance Education study materials replace the teacher in more than the subject matter alone (Jenkins, 1990). Therefore, the materials must be designed in such a way that they provide a substitute for the dialogue possible in the conventional classroom situation, and that it is not just a matter of possessing a good writing style.
Textbooks have an important role to support the lesson especially for the teacher. It provides a readily available source of ELT materials for teachers to focus on doing the real work of teaching, and not having their energy dispersed by preparation of teaching materials (Edge & Wharton 1998). The way textbook chapters are designed and structured can provide a blueprint of how lessons shall be conducted (Hutchinson & Torres 1994). There are several advantages of using textbook, as follows: 1. Textbooks can also serve as a tool to motivate and stimulate language learning (Allwright 1981, Lee 1997, Skierso 1991).
