On 10 July 2014 Victor led a class with a grammar exercise. "Find the errors in these sentences. Come to the computer and make the corrections." This lesson took place in Broward College in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Many teachers who are unfamiliar with the resources on the Internet face three obstacles: a) How do we find these files? b) How do we download these files? c) How do we organize these files? d) How do we distribute these files?
There is a principle of "help your students focus." Giving a folder with 200 files in it does not provide enough guidance to many students. Teachers often need to give students a choice of three or four files, perhaps per week, and ask students to select one or two of the four files to report on.
