Lesson planning Dos and Don'ts

 

Lesson planning is an important part of being a teacher. While experienced teachers may appear to not require a plan it is only because they have probably taught a lesson so many times that the majority of their plan is in their head. They will still have a good idea of how they want and expect the lesson to proceed. Inexperienced teachers will need the structure a good lesson plan provides. A good plan acts as a guide to your planning. It helps a teacher consider the direction of the lesson and possible pitfalls and diversions. It also helps a teacher keep on track during the lesson but should not be so restrictive that it prevents flexibility in class. A lesson plan also serves as a record of what you have taught before enabling you to easily see what to review at later dates and to see what worked and did not work with a particular lesson. Each lesson you teach should follow a certain process that involves preparation, teaching, and reflection.


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.

I think that this unit disclosed much information about Parts of speech. I feel it was given enough information for each particular case. The given information was carefully structured and organized. I believe that after learning this unit carefully, I obtained basic information about Parts of speech and will be able to help my students to learn English more accurate.I found this section quite intense and very overwhelming when it comes to the different techniques of teaching methodologies. However it was very thorough and concise with helpful examples. I found this section to be very helpful as it provides me a better idea of how to conduct classes as it also gives me a better idea of the best way to approach each lesson or class.
