Issues and Problems:
I asked the students whether or not he/she had the textbook there. This was the question that I made at the end of the class to check their attendance through the class time. The answer was surprise to me. None of them has it. They all left the textbook in the university dormitory. Until that time, I didn’t know that . Without knowing they didn’t have the textbook, I have already done most of the semester. I usually put all the pictures onto my PPT slides. Therefore the students hadn’t feel the necessity of textbook. So no one student told me that.
