Understanding ESL Phonics
For students to achieve their objectives in learning their teachers must have the competency, training experiences and a well compiled lesson plan on a daily basis and in the long run. With a lesson plan, a teacher can comfortably know how the lesson will be and also estimate the level with which the students will understand the lesson concepts and contents. With ample research, success can be foreseen in any business or even in an athletic competition.
It is important to have ESL lesson plans and this cannot be overemphasized. With lesson plans available daily ESL teachers, they are able to set up the right strategies. If there is no proper presentation then a teacher who goes to class only negatively affects the students as well as himself.
Teachers who do not prepare will underperform in their job and are unprofessional to the students, peers and superiors.
With the right resources included in the teaching session by education providers and students, if a class is not well manages it becomes a complete waste of time, effort and money. There may not be any motivation and performance may be poor if students and teachers are not in good co-existence. But if there is a lesson plan in place and used effectively daily reflects reliability and professionalism.
These types of lesson plans can be used by teachers depending on the one they deem right for their students. PPP (presentation, practice and production), TTT (test, teach and test) and TBA (task based approach ) are all approaches that a teacher can apply to ensure that the students fully under the ESL new language concept.
Most ESL educators prefer the PPP presentation, practice and production type of teaching.
PPP helps in teacher centric presentation of the concepts of a new language, the total involvement of both students and teachers and the student centric production of the language concept. On presentation, a high percentage is allocated to an explanation that is teacher led to divulge on the lesson concepts.
Practically, the students are encouraged to contribute through the arranged recitation conversations that are graded. Here, students participate up to 60 or 70 percent with the teacher being the moderator.
Finally, domination by the students should be 90 percent on the creation phase. At the end of the lesson, the students should expect feedback from the teacher who was monitoring their progress in the lesson. At this stage, the students are expected to be very comfortable with the concepts of the new language and can fluently and accurately communicate with it. Depending on the student response, teachers are encouraged to try out the online materials available since the promoters are also available to help them.
Teachers are not stopped from combining, modifying and optimizing some ESL learning approaches. The narrow inflexible type is not preferred what is most recommended is the designed lesson plan.
