5 Important Reasons to Start Planning Lessons Today! - TEFL Blog


Wed, 22 May 2019 Jon ITTT Alumni Experiences 5 Important Reasons to Start Planning Lessons Today! There are various thoughts among teachers on the use of lesson plans. Some believe that a lesson plan concentrates too much on the teacher and on what the teacher wants to accomplish and they think that this approach has the potential to neglect the students needs. On the other hand, some believe that a teacher should dictate what the students need most in a lesson. Personally, I believe that there needs to be a balance between a teacher being prepared by having a lesson plan but also have the flexibility to meet the students needs as the lessons progress.

The Principles of Creating Lesson Plans to Achieve Better Results - TEFL Blog


Thu, 16 Jul 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas The Principles of Creating Lesson Plans to Achieve Better Results When I first started as an EFL teacher two years ago, my senior colleagues would often advise me to create a lesson plan well in advance of an upcoming lesson. Having had no formal teaching experience back then, it surprised me because I assumed that simply creating lesson materials for students was sufficient. I did not think that lesson plans were necessary because when I was a student, I had never seen any of my teachers referring to them on the job. It seemed to me that teachers were natural improvisers and could deliver lessons without any referenced document.

Lesson Planning Essentials - TEFL Blog


Wed, 29 Apr 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas Lesson Planning Essentials In my experience and the experience of my teacher colleagues, lesson planning has never been among the most interesting or engaging activities. The reasons are always different: some believe that lesson planning is not effective because a teacher cannot predict the direction of the lesson. Others think that it is a complete waste of time because the process of planning a lesson may seem boring and time-consuming. As a beginner teacher, I had a false belief that lesson planning is not important for an ESL teacher, especially if the group of students has a high level of English. However, after teaching for a longer period, I have realized that only with a certain amount of planning can an ESL lesson be not...  [Read more]
