Having students not just read a text to get it done is a very important and difficult thing to mange. in this video there are many great tips to help brdge the gap of teachers and students. there were many great tips showing how a teacher can expaind the knowledge of the students.

This lesson strategy is interesting due to how the teachers predicted the specific examples of syntax that would mess students up and attempted to even utilize modern culture references to help students relate to the text better. During the actual activity, though I did not see as much of the modern culture references, it was interesting how the teacher directly attempted to address all the students' struggles in interpreting tough sentences. Starting with a less complicated sentence that contained syntax to bring students in also seemed effective in identifying pivotal points. A question I have would be regarding how the students responded to this activity through maybe some type of independent practice and how successful students were in paraphrasing these "juicy" sentences themselves. Did they need any more extra support in identifying the main purpose of each sentence?
