This module allows the participants to observe language classes and gain hands-on classroom experience while using the skills and methods addressed in this and other MA TESOL modules.
The activities consist of topics introduced in 6 lectures and tutorials and followed up on in 6 classroom observations. Each observation will be preceded by a pre-observation meeting with the observed teacher and followed by a post-observation meeting with the observed teacher (1 hr each). Observation diagram and a reflective journal will be produced to document the activities. The participants will also teach a total of 10 mock lessons and real lessons in language classes in SIP (6 + 4). In addition, they will observe and peer-review each other’s teaching under the supervision of the module leader.
