An Ideal ELT lesson!: Some tips
« on: April 12, 2017, 04:30:25 PM »
Some Do’s in an English lesson:
•   Use a variety of strategies. (Thought-provoking questions, pair-work, group work, peer-teaching, peer-checking, short acting out,
       debate on lesson issues bla, bla, bla…)
•   Act like a teacher. Both students and teachers will look up to you as a role model. Act professional.
•   Make class interesting. Prepare a variety of activities, quick tests, and games.
•   Be consistent with the rules. You shouldn’t play “favourites”---make sure you treat all your students equally.
•   Plan your lessons ahead of time. Winging it doesn’t work. You will have to think about what you want to teach before you enter
        the classroom.
•   Make sure the topic is appropriate. Avoid issues that might spark sentiments.
•   Speak clearly and loudly maintaining good pronunciation,acceptable accent and appropriate intonation .
•   Tell the students why you want them to do something.
•   Expect the unexpected.  Always have a back-up plan.
•   Ask your students for feedback. They might also have suggestions for things that you can do in class.
•   Adapt your teaching style. Some students like to thinking things over and have everything perfect before speaking. Others want   
        to shout out the answer as soon as they know it.
•   Bring “realia” into the classroom. Pictures from magazines, photos from home,                stories from you own life, real 
        objects
        make lessons come alive.
•   Group English language learners in mixed-ability groups.
•   For new skills and knowledge expect the ELLs to produce work in English at their own levels.
•   Use it sparingly to address cultural incompatibility or language-specific pragmatism

Some Dont’s:
•   Wear weekend clothes to class. Jogging pants, jeans or shorts aren’t acceptable.
•   Dumb students down. Just because they can’t answer a question, Ask a different    question or see if someone can help the   
        student.
•   Embarrass your students.
•   Translate or paraphrase everything into L1.
•   Code switch for ELT.

One needs to ensure-
Differentiated Instruction
One would:
build lessons, develop teaching materials, use "realia" with practical life examples and vary their approach so that all students, regardless of where they are starting from, can learn content effectively, according to their needs.
That's "Do", isn't it?
