Approaches and Strategies for Language Teaching
4 CREDITS | TERM 2
The purpose of this course is to provide an introduction to models, strategies and methods of language teaching with special attention to learner differences (social, cultural, physical, intellectual) that influence academic performance. Throughout the course, students will be looking at examples of different teaching methods in classrooms, both on video and through live observations of teachers. Students will then use the knowledge of teaching methods to design and teach a lesson at a language-learning classroom. The clinical teaching experiences will be used to support theoretical and practical applications of the planning and instruction of the content and skills related to language learning.
