This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
This unit leads us to contemplate the pros and cons of different kinds of course materials, spending the most time considering textbooks, but also addressing authentic materials and teacher-created materials. Textbooks are extremely useful in that they provide overall direction for a class: a series of language points for students to learn, materials with which to learn them, review of previous points, and an overall progression towards more difficult language. Also, because all the material are organized into a book with a table of contents and (hopefully) a glossary, it is easy for students to look back at previous lessons to review. When all materials are distributed piecemeal, this is more difficult. However, bad textbooks can be more of an impediment than a help. Common problems teachers run into when using a bad textbook include having a textbook that does not address the language needs of the students, having a textbook that is outdated, boring, or culturally unsuitable, and either using the textbook to teach unsatisfactory lessons, or having to create so much supplementary material that it overburdens the teacher.
