My basic lesson plan.... review.... anticipatory set.... direct instruction... guided practice.... independent practice.... wrap up.
My motto..... "Whoever talks learns!" So I talk only a little, and let my students do the talking!
|Direct instruction, using auditory (to develop listening skills) combined with drawings (to help the visual learners).|
|Checking for understanding, a critical component of direct instruction, to make sure all the students are learning.|
|Proximity works well to connect with the monks, to make sure I understand any questions or concerns they may have.|
|Small group work, allows students to practice their English skills based on my direct instruction, and allows me to monitor the student's speaking skills.|
|Independent practice..... it's good for the student who is speaking and is also good for the other students who are listening.|
