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.
In this unit I learned that creating lesson plans for classes ahead of time helps the teacher visualize a goal for the lesson and even for the entire course and record the classes progress. While the teacher should always have a lesson plan handy to refer to during a class it is good to sometimes be flexible and adaptable to the students being taught.This unit provides different tests to evaluate the students. As teachers, we can determine our students through placement tests, progress tests, diagnostic tests, practice tests and general external examinations. We can use these tests throughout the course in order to assess how well our students are learning as they prepare for summative evaluation.
