4 Ways How to Design an ESL Syllabus - TEFL Blog


Thu, 01 Aug 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas 4 Ways How to Design an ESL Syllabus In the existing literature on language education, the terms CURRICULUM and SYLLABUS are sometimes used interchangeably, sometimes differentiated, and sometimes misused and misunderstood.

According to Rodgers, syllabi (or syllabuses), which prescribe the content to be covered by a given course, form only a small part of the total school program. The curriculum is a far broader concept. The curriculum is all those activities in which children engage under the auspices of the school. This includes not only what students learn, but how they learn it, how teachers help them learn, using what supporting...  [Read more]
