- on the first lesson, present the content of the week, ask questions to other students, etc.
- on the second lesson, prepare an activity (a game, a Kahoot, debates, discussion, etc.) so that everybody participates in the lesson

- while the week leaders deliver the lessons, other students are active and do the tasks

About the book:
weeks 3-12 to cover the content of the book.
there are 10 weeks
we have 3 lesson each week
for 2 weeks we will study 1 unit, because there are two readings
when a paired lesson goes, we have reading exercises.
before the lesson, students should read the text and work on the new words
lesson 1 - week leaders will make other students do the exercises on the text from the book
lesson 2 - week leaders will prepare a discussion, questions-answers, debates, kahoot on the content of the text.
if you have an interesting idea for a homework, you can give it, too. but don't forget to check it!
when we have a single lesson (Friday) Rizabek teacher will explain writing.
Blended or traditional classroom?
Traditional classroom: on the lesson, teacher presents the topic, the students practice, then at home students do tasks
Blended (flipped) classroom is when: the students learn the topic before the lesson, the teacher makes students practice.
