This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
Overall, this unit looked at various teaching methodologies such as grammar-translation, audio-lingualism, tasked-based and most importantly Engage-Study-Activate (ESA)just to name a few.
The content of this unit further looked at various teaching techniques and activities such as ESA along with classroom activities for each of its phases. Such as introduction prompts, fizz-buzz or I spy for the Engage phase, whereas, activities such as elicitation, spelling (hangman), meaning (gaps fill)for the Study phase and role-play, debates, or story-building for the Activate phase.
I learnt that in the early years many individuals came up with various teaching/learning methodologies, all had its pros and cons. However, as time past, the most ideal methodology came about which was ESA. I learnt that ESA incorporates some to all of each of the early methodologies, thereby being more effective and efficient in today's English language classroom.
ESA is a new teaching methodology to me, that I learnt from this unit and I hope to use it very soon along with the new various classroom activities listed in this unit. As I read some of them, I reflected on when I was in secondary school and how my teachers for various subjects use exactly some of those engage, study and activate classroom activities.
