As we head towards one of the busiest periods of the year in UK and some overseas schools, here is the fifth session of my 10-week Teacher Training course for teachers of Young Learners.
Session 5 looks at the fundamental principles of planning lessons for children. Trainees are invited to brainstorm the issues they have and the aims they wish to achieve in their lessons. They then look at a sample lesson plan with post-lesson observations written in by the teacher and discuss the strengths of the lesson and action points. They finish by reviewing their lesson plans (see Session 4 for this) and by considering global and specific ways to improve their lesson planning.
I hope you find these materials useful and relevant to your teaching context. Do please let me know if you have any feedback or questions.
