New to TEFL/TESOL, Experienced
Lesson planning is a crucial skill for any teacher because it helps us save time and make our teaching more efficient.
In this course, we will look at the main components of lesson plans and why we need to write them. We will explore lesson focus and how lesson aims should reflect it. We will pay special attention to the task cycle and talk about setting tasks, monitoring, and giving feedback that you and your students would benefit from.
We will look at the typical stages for different types of lessons, such as systems and skills, and extra stages that can be included in any lesson.
Finally, you will get equipped with different techniques that will help you save time when planning your lessons on a day-to-day basis.
This course is especially suitable for those who want to take initial training, such as the CELTA course. However, teachers with experience can also take this course to deepen their knowledge and improve their skills.
