This is what one of our TEFL graduates feels he has gained from the course, or a part of it, and how he plans to put into action what he has learned.
In this unit I learned the importance for lesson planning and the necessary parts of the lesson plan. It is important to write a simple, well-organized lesson plan in order to have something to refer to in order to help the teacher run the lesson smoothly, it create a record of teaching, and it also guides a substitute to teach the lesson if they are needed. Some information on the lesson plan should also be put on the board, so the students knows what is expected during the class. The objective and the order of the activities should be listed on the board in clear view of the students.Students need to be motivated to speak and write so teachers should always create a desire and a need for them to communicate by ensuring that selected activities serve a useful and practical purpose. To communicate proficiently, students must develop accuracy and fluency, and the Study phase is used primarily for improving the former and the Activate phase for improving the latter. I found the guidelines for creative writing and speaking activities helpful, in particular, determining whether students have the necessary language and preparing for any difficulties students may encounter.
