Lesson Planning - Part 9 - Correction


This video is part of our Lesson Planning series. This episode takes a look at the process of correction in an EFL classroom. It is always advised to let the students self-correct themselves before stepping in as students oftentimes give a wrong answer by mistake. Should the student not be able to correct themselves, peer correction is recommended. Teacher correction should only be the last step if everything else does not work.

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.

The first unit of the Teaching English to Young Learners Course shows an overview of this course's lessons and explains how it works. The lesson presents the meaning of common acronyms in the English teaching world and explains what a young learner is. The last topic covers the employment prospects to TEFL teachers: working conditions, positions types, and salaries.I was introduced to formal lesson planning for ESL. I expect to use this directly as a resource once I begin to actually teach to a class. I also was provided the opportunity to review some of the fundamental structures of lessons, the straight line ESA and the patchwork ESA. I am sure that this material will be very useful as I continue to progress as a teacher.
