Why are US Exports So Competitive?
This case can be used to help you understand why U.S. exports are so competitive, what is unique about U.S. exports, and what has been driving their recent rise in a bleak global economic environment. This case provides substantial evidence for the competitiveness of U.S. exports. In 2013, the United States exported a record $1.58 trillion, with an enviable 8.4% annual increase. The United States contributed approximately 89% of the value-added of its exports.
U.S. exports have to deliver value, they have to be rare and hard to imitate, and have to organize themselves in a more productive and efficient manner relative to their global rivals to sustain their competitiveness. While the products themselves have to be strong and competitive, Uncle Sam has also helped. At least ten federal agencies offer export assistance, including the departments of Commerce, State, Treasury, Energy, and Agriculture. Going beyond routine export assistance, new initiatives focus on negotiating free trade agreements (FTAs) with trading partners. In addition to FTAs, the U.S. government often negotiates with other foreign governments for better market access and terms of trade for U.S. exporters. Informal norms and values, both at home and abroad, play a role in U.S. exports.

After that I distributed a worksheet to the students and this worksheets contains everything, I mean the whole three activities and the homework part. Then, I put the students in pairs to do the quiz as the second activity. In this activity, I required them to say their opinions about their partner ,it was entertaining and smooth everyone accepted others’ opinion. Continuing with the parts, I asked learners to complete matching activity and articulate their guesses. I had allotted for this part nearly twenty minutes .Finally,the post-speaking activity, categorizing the adjectives as negative, positive or both, was my best because the students spoke out their own thoughts and I knew it will certainly be debate about which are positive and negative qualities. . Much to my own amusement, I found this part utterly interesting as a discussion escalated into a heated debate between two of three students Monther ,Ahmed and Saed on whether we should consider ”shy” a positive or negative adjective .I gave them absolute freedom to select and speak. I accepted the debate even though I have the answers .This worked well because the students were able to come up with their own thoughts and ideas about what make a good and bad characters by using those adjectives. I used a variety of engagement strategies in my lesson to connect the students with the lesson .I brought them over to the rug area, so it was a comfortable and informal environment and I wanted the students to share their opinions and experiences. After my teaching demonstration was over, some students showed me a positive feedback as Abd alaziz and sister Rohadia which makes me relaxed and My lecturer called me and spoke with me about how to make my demo better than this .On the whole Madam Maznah she said it was good demonstration but she suggested it may have been more practical if I gave further extent to students interactions. I will give attention more to that aspect and this is the only thing I would have done differently. I have learned that when I want to showcase my teaching skills, I have to be sure to strike a balance between the time I spend talking and the time I spend guiding student-centered activities. Overall, the demonstration went well and I feel confident that many students learned something new about how to use and they were interested in the lesson .Also, I have got good feedback from them after the lesson which made me very proud .One of my strengths as a teacher that helped me in this demonstration is that I’m good at responding to students’ questions and comments. This is why I like leading discussions and why I enjoyed seeing that everyone was completely engaged and participating. There were not any disciplinary problems or students not participating. Be motivating, energetic teacher, take care of your students with respect accept their comments, welcome their questions, and show gratitude for their participation. Then, nothing will stop you from being a good teacher . This how I want to be as a teacher and I believed that I did present all my best to succeed my demonstration teaching. But I also believed that these would not be a success if it were only me. I passed this challenge because of my cooperating lecturer’s support . She helped me a lot in improving myself. As well as, it went well because of the cooperation of my students. Most of all beca>GET ANSWER
