English Teaching Practicum (TEJL-10)
This course has been canceled for this semester.
Practice makes perfect! Effective teaching can only be developed through hands-on experience in the classroom. That is why, the main component of the teacher-practicum training course is controlled, in-classroom teaching practice working with your peers as language learners. Course participants will be able to apply skills and knowledge acquired from the TEJL-4 and/or TEJL-1 courses, such as implementing effective lesson plans, creating and sequencing in-class activities, handling difficult situations that may occur in real-life classroom situations. While you teach, the instructor will support you and provide you with constructive feedback.
