    opening

    Dear teachers,

    I am preparing a job interview by giving a lesson. I have two quesitons to ask:

    No.1
    Could you please kindly tell me how I should begin the lesson as an introduction? I have thought of several ways of it:
    From today on (I know I can say "From now on" but I don't know "from today on " is correct or not) we shall spend 8 periods dealing with/ learning/ studying/ discussing/ focusing on Lesson One.
    No.2
    Could you please explain in a lesson plan if there are any differences between "goals" and "objectives"?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    Re: opening

    Note that "From now on" is quite a forceful expression. It is most often used with a rebuke or reprimand. A teenager has been brought back to his home by a policeman, for being intoxicated in town late at night. After the policeman leaves, the father reprimands him and says, "...and from now on, no going out of a weeknight, and on weekends, I want you home by 9p.m." The expression has the sense of someone being firm about some matter, 'laying down the law'.

    From today on (I know I can say "From now on" but I don't know "from today on " is correct or not) we shall spend 8 periods dealing with/ learning/ studying/ discussing/ focusing on Lesson One.


    For the next 8 lessons, we're going to be looking at Lesson One.

    For the next 8 lessons, we're going to concentrate on Lesson One.
    For the next 8 lessons, we're going to study Lesson One.
