The Confidence Book is easy to use. Most of the activities require very little pre-lesson analysis or preparation - just an open mind (or a number of them) - and a desire to let things happen. You could say that the book has its own natural order, progressing from students teaching each other their names, right through to teachers dealing with being observed. Within the part designed for learners (Chapters 1,3,4, and 5 and most of Chapter 2) there is also a sensible progression from the learning of discrete items such as words and sounds, to the more complex activities, or whole approaches, suggested by Giving students control (Chapter 5). The book could either be integrated into a standard syllabus or used separately in optional or extra lessons. It is perhaps worth pointing out that many of the activities are not “one-off's”, but can be used again and again, and built upon, as part of an ongoing process of learner and teacher development.
