In-class Course Materials

Trainees will be given detailed handbooks for the following areas of the course:

  • Teaching Skills
  • Language Awareness
  • Phonetics
  • Classroom Management

These high quality materials are the basis for the input sessions and will provide the trainees with valuable reference resources. The center provides course handbooks and materials for the course, as well as two A4 folders which should be organized as follows:

The Course Log File

  • Teaching Practice: lesson plans, materials used, self-assessment and the tutors assessment
  • Unknown Language Journal
  • Lesson Observation Journal

These logs form a record of the course and will be checked during moderation.

Your Own Notes File

During input sessions you will receive numerous handouts and may want to take your own notes as well. We suggest dividing the file under the following headings:

  • Timetable
  • Classroom management
  • Teaching skills
  • Grammar
  • Phonology
