TEFL 120-hour Course - Unit 9


In her ninth video diary instalment, Chantelle discusses unit 9 of her online TEFL course from ITTT. This unit covers lesson planning and the importance of being well prepared for your lessons. The unit discusses whether there is a need to plan lessons, how a lesson plan should be written and what should be included in a lesson plan. It also looks at ways to plan a sequence of lessons and how important it is for teachers to reflect on past lessons to help improve future classes.

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 college I did a lot of lesson planning and I feel quite familiar with this already. It felt like a nice review of what I have done in the past. Being organized and having your lessons planned out for the whole year is very important for teachers. This way they know how to structure their classrooms and makes it really easy for their curriculum.I feel I have learned a lot from this unit. It is things that you tend to forget what happened in a classroom when you were younger. The example's of using games to trigger interest in learning English I believe would be a great tool for helping students learn English. The theories are also good, it provides a methodology for engaging a classroom.
