    This practical course has several distinct aims: * To consider whether, what and how to teach grammar and vocabulary. Why do we teach it? Should we do so? What is important? What isn’t? What works? What doesn’t? * To introduce students to various strategies, techniques and resources for teaching English grammar and vocabulary in a classroom situation * To provide both practice at and feedback on grammar and vocabulary teaching. Ideally, students will also work on developing their own knowledge of English grammar and vocabulary! * * * This course is most suitable for students in MEd programmes who will go on to teach slightly older learners (the focus on grammar is not really appropriate for primary schools) and is heavily classroom-focussed (so is not ideal for anyone planning not to become a teacher) although all students are welcome.

    • Dr. Rachel Ramsay

    Tuesday: 10:00 - 12:00, weekly (from 04/04/17)

    Teaching content and knowledge of English simultaneously is becoming increasingly common in German schools. This course will introduce students to various strategies, techniques and resources for teaching other subjects in English, examining issues you are likely to face as a CLIL teacher. The course will provide both practice at and language feedback on Content and Language Integrated Learning, including task and lesson planning and implementation, and resource development (using translated German-language and English-language materials). It will also look at ways of teaching English literature and culture to students at various levels. As part of the assessment, each student will develop linguistic and topic-based materials for a 20 minute mini-lesson of their own design and teach it to the rest of the group, to be followed by a discussion of relevant didactic and linguistic issues. This lesson will either be based on students’ second subject or on Anglophone culture. This course is assessed via a portfolio comprising peer and tutor review of your lesson and materials, your reflection on the lesson as taught, and an in-class essay.

  • No access 3.02.503 - SÜ Praxisteilmodul (Gym/WiPäd) Show lecturers
    • Dr. Sylke Bakker

    Wednesday: 18:00 - 20:00, weekly (from 05/04/17), MM
    Dates on Friday. 28.04.17 14:00 - 18:00

    Against the backdrop of current research in Didactics, students are expected to analyse teaching and learning materials as well as (excerpts from) current textbooks. The communicative approach towards language teaching but also the most recent trends in task-based language learning will serve as basis for an in-depth look into the requirements and realities of language learning classrooms. The development of units of work and lesson plans will be informed by research in the field so that theories of language learning and teaching can be critically applied to a selection of tasks, resources and ideas for projects. Lesson planning involves • realistic target setting, • allowing for differentiation, • an appropriate choice of materials and media • as well as devising appropriate assessment strategies. Schemes of work submitted by students will be put under close scrutiny by peers and the lecturer in order to determine their viability in the classroom. Ideally, concepts and strategies will be put into practice during subsequent internships. Assessment format: -in mid-term you are expected to prove your planning skills by handing in a short assignment on a material / a topic as part of a unit of work -towards the end of term you are asked to submit a more comprehensive analysis of a topic or a task and- evolving from this - a lesson plan
