The Art of English – Lesson Planning

4/hWTSeFTkMfux1z4yxs_Diq2BYJh-ZjHsi2LVDxIm-Pc

Preparing A Lesson is best done when the teacher has already tested the students’ levels and audited their needs before setting objectives and preparing English lessons to reach those objectives…
Testing the students’ level will help you take the course on the right foot… rather than relying on impressions or resting the course on the students’ own appreciation… which will soon prove wrong in most cases…
The needs and objective –together with a calendar for the lessons- will ascertain everything will go according to level and needs… even if the students’ needs and objectives may change during the course… in which case the English teacher will need to assess those again before implementing a new course of action…

Once the teacher has assessed the level, need(s) and objective(s) he/she can gather the best book(s) or support teaching material(s) to be used during the English lesson(s) and how devise the lessons should be approach…

What is the best approach for which student ?
Remember… some students will tend to be more visual or at reading while others will have better listening or oral skills…
Some students may only need one or two sessions or a couple of hours to reach their objectives as they may require help with some telephoning or presentation skills… or maybe just preparing a meeting or a presentation in English… or even a negotiation…
If students may appear similar in the whole or be placed in the same class or level group yet they may still differ in their abilities and priorities… and it belongs to the teacher to address those needs… to meet the students’ objectives…

The English teacher thus needs to ascertain the appropriate tools are offered to the student(s) at each student’s level… the tools should be made available to the students and promote progress in all the four skills of Reading and Listening Comprehension as much as oral and Written Expression to enable progress in the command of English…

Also… the teacher should make sure he/she remains on track and doesn’t overload the student(s) with cumbersome material or bites that would prove too fat to chew… as this may confuse and discourage the student(s)… many teachers still hand out unsavoury lists of this or that…

Once the appropriate material and support, at the appropriate level, are ready to be implemented, the English course can only be plain sailing from there on…
