Classroom based TESOL trainees will be given a course manual for the following areas of the course:
- Language Awareness/Grammar
- Teaching Skills
- Classroom Management
Our high quality, unique TESOL course materials are the basis for the input sessions during the course and will provide trainees with valuable reference resources for future teaching.
We provide course handbooks and materials, including an A4 folder which should be organized as follows:
The TESOL Course Log
- Teaching Practice lesson plan, materials & assessment
- Unknown Language Journal
- Lesson Observation Journal
This course log forms a record of the progress made through the course and should be tidy and professional in appearance. The log will be inspected on a weekly basis and used for moderation purposes.
Your own TESOL Notes file
Throughout the course input sessions you will receive numerous handouts and will also take your own notes as well. We suggest dividing the file under the following headings:
- Teaching skills
- Classroom management
Brief Recommended Reading List:
We highly recommend the following books and suggest that you have a copy of, or are familiar with them. Both books will be an invaluable resource both during and after the course when you are teaching.
