The first part of my study phase is going to be the board work and I'm going to use the information that I generated in the elicitation part of my engage phase to move on to the actual board work. What I'm going to do is to show the structure of this particular tense. So, the phase study I'm expecting to take about ten minutes on this particular part and, again, the interaction will mainly be the students talking to me. So, how am I going to achieve that with this information? Well, we could ask the students to have a look at the sentences themselves and to tell us what they can see. If we look at each of the first words in here, then at this level, I should hopefully be able to elicit from my students what each of these words have in common and they may well give an answer that each of those words is actually a subject. What I can then do is to elicit those subjects that are not already here, for example "we" and "it" and those subjects are followed by this second word "am," "is" and "are" and we should be able to elicit from our students that each of those words have something in common in the English language, which are now each of the "be". Finally, we can look at the third word in each of these and find out what they have got in common and the most obvious thing that they have in common, despite some spelling changes, is that they end up with "-ing". The thing that goes before those "-ing" is some form of verb, to sit, to listen, and so on and so forth. So, the third word is the verb plus "-ing". So, in this way, I'm showing the structure of the present continuous tense in the form of this model subject plus verb "be" plus the verbs "-ing".
Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.
Classroom management topics are always very good. every teacher would agree that there is no perfect class. i have used some of the methods shared here in my class. Some walked and others i had to be extra creative.In general i like the unit. But in reality it might not be very practical.There was a lot in this unit. I found the information on the modal verbs to be very helpful. It is nice to have a resource like the modal table found in the lesson notes. I also found the section on passive voice to be very useful, as it increased my understanding of its common usages.The unit was introductory and illuminating as to what would I expect to learn through out the course. It presented the key ideas and objectives of each unit , together with the relate to content to be delivered during each class. I think that the unit was well organized and well prepared.
