TEFL 101: Principles, Approaches, Methods & Techniques contains 101 mini-chapters covering every aspect of ESL teaching. This book is the culmination of Luan Hanratty's work maintaining education standards in schools throughout China. It is a comprehensive catalogue of his knowledge, wit and wisdom related to the industry. A good teacher should delight in taking fairly complex concepts and breaking them down so that anyone can understand. Thus TEFL 101 is written in a style that newly-hired teachers & laymen can appreciate and as such, it is also a reaction against the many teaching books that talk in abstract, convoluted and jargon-heavy ways. Instead, TEFL 101 is straightforward and relevant to the world of language teaching. Sections: Classroom Management - Evolution of Methods - Classic Questions - Speech & Text - Grammar & Fluency - Phonology - Interactions - Psychology - Large Classes - Philosophical & Theoretical Considerations - Social Issues & Asian Considerations - Commercial & Professional Issues.

ESL/EFL: the Emergency English Teacher

Quick and Easy Activities and Games for the ESL/EFL Classroom

Category:

Page: 124

View: 6593

The Emergency English Teacher contains an extensive collection of tried and tested activities and games which can be used in any ESL/EFL classroom. Most English teachers don't just teach one age group or ability level and the book reflects this by containing ideas that are suitable for all levels of students, from young beginners to competent speakers. All of the activities in this book have been adapted to help develop one or more aspects of the students' language skills. They are also fun and enjoyable, and your students will often request you to repeat them regularly. The benefits of this book for teachers are: -No Preparation/Low Preparation. There is no need to photocopy anything. You don't need to spend a fortune at the stationery shop, or hours on pre-class preparation. Just read the instructions and you are ready to go! -They're Quick! Every activity displays a set-up time, which tells the teacher how long the activity will take to set-up in the classroom. This even allows the book to be referenced quickly in class during those lesson-gap EMERGENCIES when a class runs short! The overarching themes of this book are: -Student empowerment. After the teacher has initially organized an activity one or two times, many of the activities can be handed over to the students to plan, organize and run themselves. This greatly increases the opportunity for the students to use English for a functional purpose (how English is used naturally) rather than a display purpose (what I call textbook English). -Teacher monitoring. This book often emphasises the importance of teacher monitoring. When the teacher hands over the responsibilty for the running of an activity to the students, they are effectively stepping out of the circle. What this allows the teacher to do, is to really get down to observing their students using English for communicative purposes. The teacher will be able to assess how well the students are using the language structures they have been taught, and plan for error correction strategies in post-activity classes. The teacher will also be able to observe where the students are reaching the limits of their current language abilities, which will aid them in the formation of future lesson plans.
