In her ninth video diary instalment, Chantelle discusses unit 9 of her online TEFL course from ITTT. This unit covers lesson planning and the importance of being well prepared for your lessons. The unit discusses whether there is a need to plan lessons, how a lesson plan should be written and what should be included in a lesson plan. It also looks at ways to plan a sequence of lessons and how important it is for teachers to reflect on past lessons to help improve future classes.
Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this course and loook forward not only to finding work in the field but also of studying more. Sometimes I struggled with the way questions were worded but this is something I have struggled with since childhood and might well have been flagged as an indicator of something else if I was a child in school now! More gust for the mill.Knowing how to derive a spoken or read sentence's meaning from context is an important skill when one is learning a new language. As with the unit before, choosing interesting and engaging topics can help make teaching these skills easier. I am looking forward to the units on productive skills and how to balance my teaching between them and receptive skills.
