Typical Lesson Plans

Postby ChampionKaji » 18 Aug 2012, 04:48

If you had to come up with a half-hour lesson plan for adults, how would you go about doing it? Would you have a warm-up session? if so, what would you incorporate in it? I don't think that singing songs would be appropriate at this age.

How would you introduce the main lesson, or transition from the warm-up to the main lesson?

I'll bump this as I'm curious too if anyone has any input.

No responses yet, but I have additional questions.

Would you design a lesson plan regarding teaching the past-tense as a role-play, or would you do an activity that engages the class as a teacher?

the class as the teacher? Hrmm no i wouldnt do this.

Would always have a warmer though (within reason). I guess think about the target language you want them to use. e.g. for warmer talk about what you did or they did at the weekend/last holiday etc. You could use powerpoint or posters to get them interested?

What kind of lesson focus is it? grammar? reading? listening? speaking? writing?

I should have said "As a teacher, would you perform a lesson that engages the class to get them to focus on you, or would you have the students do a role-playing exercise amongst themselves?"
