This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
Unit 9 discussed the area of lesson planning. First, it introduced three important functions of a lesson plan, being that they aid in planning, they act as a document to refer to during the lesson and a record you can look back on to see what was achieved. The unit also gave an outline of the basic principles to lesson planning. The six things to remember while lesson planning are to keep it simple, not script it, structure the lesson and maintain that structure, anticipate time throughout the lesson, keep a balance of skills to have a smooth flow and stay flexible and open to adaptation. Finally, the unit gave a list of things that should be included in a lesson plan, including learner objectives, teaching aids, anticipated problems, phase, class level, etc. What was really helpful in this Unit were the examples included. The example of the lesson plan I found particularly helpful because it made it easier to visualize the layout of what a lesson plan should look like and how to include everything most efficiently. The unit also included ideas for self-evaluation after a lesson is completed to help in the teacher's personal aims.
