Part 6:

What elements of this lesson are new, i.e., that you haven’t used or thought before? (A requirement of this final project lesson plan is that you use something new in the lesson that you learned as part of our course)

At the course of Methods of Teaching Foreign Languages, we acquired a lot useful information. As I am an English teacher some of them are not new for me.

I think that we’ll apply them in our lessons. Before coming here, I didn’t know about Silent Way and De-Suggestopedia Teaching Methods. I guess that it will be interesting to use some of their elements at the lesson.

We’ve been using Cooperative Language Teaching in our lessons for many years and I didn’t know that it’s one of the methods of Communicative Language Teaching approaches. At the lesson, I used some elements of CLT. However, I hadn’t used Jigsaw activity for many years before coming here. I refreshed it in my mind and decided to use it at my lessons frequently. I always use brainstorming, problem-solving activities to extend students’ communication.

In order to achieve your target aims and objectives you are to be creative and involve students, motivate them.

In which part of the course did you get the idea for these elements (based on the teaching methods)?

We were acquainted with many methods at our course and I think they will be useful in the future. Time does not stop in one place it always moves on and so methods as well. We are to choose effective ones and use them to reach our aims.

I’d like to use Content-Based and Task-Based techniques to improve my students creativeness and practical skills. Frankly speaking, I liked this course, the way of your teaching.
