Types And Purpose Of ESL Lesson Plans
For students to achieve their objectives in learning their teachers must have the competency, training experiences and a well compiled lesson plan on a daily basis and in the long run. A teacher who has a lesson plan clearly visualizes the whole learning session and is able to determine how the students will grasp the contents and the concepts of the lesson. With ample research, success can be foreseen in any business or even in an athletic competition.
The importance of lesson plans in ESL cannot be overemphasized more. With the ESL lesson plans teachers are able to anticipate the correct strategies and anticipate the mood of the student. Students will be negatively affected if any teacher goes to class without proper presentation.
Cases of underperformance will be reported if teachers do not prepare properly by the students, superiors and peers.
With the right resources included in the teaching session by education providers and students, if a class is not well manages it becomes a complete waste of time, effort and money. Students and teachers who are not well coordinated for learning then students will not be motivated to learn and will not improve. But if there is a lesson plan in place and used effectively daily reflects reliability and professionalism.
ESL learning has three types of lesson plans and teachers can use any provided the students understand. PPP (presentation, practice and production), TTT (test, teach and test) and TBA (task based approach ) are all approaches that a teacher can apply to ensure that the students fully under the ESL new language concept.
Most ESL educators prefer the PPP presentation, practice and production type of teaching.
PPP helps in teacher centric presentation of the concepts of a new language, the total involvement of both students and teachers and the student centric production of the language concept. On presentation, a high percentage is allocated to an explanation that is teacher led to divulge on the lesson concepts.
The recitation conversations are graded hence the students are expected to participate. The teacher in this case is just a moderator and student participation is about 60-70 percent.
Finally, domination by the students should be 90 percent on the creation phase. Teachers are expected to give feedback at the end of the lesson after monitoring the student progress during the lesson. Students should by this time be comfortable with the new language concepts and should accurately and promptly communicate easily. Since online material is readily available, the sponsors of the brands should support them fully and teachers are encouraged to try them going by how the students will respond.
It is good to try out the various ESL learning plans and teachers are also encouraged to even modify, combine and optimize them where possible. A lesson plan that is carefully drawn out as compared to the rigid fixed type of teaching.
