I prefer an interactive approach with my students, engaging in lively debate and discussion about texts rather than prescriptive learning. I often introduce critical material and historical context when approaching new texts in order to boost understanding surrounding the material. After collating all our ideas we work on structuring them and developing a clear line of argument, this can be replicated again and again, not just in English, but in all walks of life.
