TEFL Videos - In class+course
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.
This unit is based on teaching vocabulary which has at least two things to be taken into consideration,that is teaching the meaning ,pronouciation and useage. Also grammar which is one of the key strings in English has been touched here. Teaching grammar, the teacher needs to help the students discover and effectively/meaningfully understand the structures or paterns.In considering which vocabulary/grammar to teach,the origin is not important but the spellings and meaning rather are. This Unit has through the lesson plans enabled me to clearly understand what I should be doing in class.In unit 10 we looked at two videos and compared them. In the first one we saw an example of a poor lesson, while the second one was effective. We saw how the teacher's attitude resulted in a completely different result for the whole class. I was able to identify several points that made the difference. In the second video, the teacher was interested in the student's name. He smiled, his instructions used language that was familiar to the students. He did not underestimate the students' difficulties with the new language and He kept the students engaged, captivated throughout the lesson.
