This course is designed to examine a range of foreign language teaching methods in light of their application to classroom practice and to provide you with hands-on experiences in developing the skills you’ll need in the foreign language classroom during your student teaching and beyond. Through your readings, interactions with classmates and supervisors, microteaching sessions, practicum in the field, and personal reflection, you will begin to develop your personal philosophy of foreign language teaching. In addition, providing pre-service teachers with classroom-based teaching experience is imperative for a teacher training program to launch a novice teacher on a successful career (Cooper, 2002). Therefore, this course will also include a service-learning component to help you learn about the milieu of junior high school. This course also aims to provide a theoretical framework which is guided by a belief that teachers should reflect on what they do and construct their own guiding principles. In order to do this, participants in the course will work together in groups to discuss, plan, strategize, and design their own lesson plans. Guidance will be given through lectures, handouts, demo-lessons, observation of micro-teaching lessons, discussions, peer evaluation, feedback and group work.
You are expected not only to read the handouts, the reading assignments and other related materials, but also to come to class prepared to exchange ideas, thoughts, and reflections.
