Foreign Teacher Method Prepare all necessary materials (handouts, quizzes, tests, toys – hammers, balls, etc.) Be in the class a few minutes early to greet parents and students. Ask casual questions as a warm-up. Review past materials. Students should all be in class. Introduce Language Focus I – what they’ve come to learn. It is critical that each lesson have at least one language focus. Optionally review past lessons and materials. Drills (repeat after me, flash cards) for the new language input. Ensure they speak correctly. This is the stage to correct errors in pronunciation or usage – before it becomes habit, and while they have a correct model. Games and activities using Focus I language. The goal is to have students speaking and using the new language as much as possible. Establish familiarity and challenge students to find creative uses for the new input. Allow the CR to lead a game or activity. Closely observe student performance. Have students mastered the new language input? Prepare materials and revise the lesson as necessary. Review materials from the first lesson. Ensure that students comprehend and retain Focus I. If possible, introduce Focus II. Focus II drills and exposition. Games and activities using both Focus I and Focus II language. Scale to a difficulty that challenges students. Allow the CR to lead a game or activity. Ensure that each student has a full performance evaluation in their blue book.

Course Representative Method Greet incoming students and parents. Take attendance. Take homework from students. Scan your teacher’s lesson plan. Which skills are being taught, stressed, and developed? Which skills are not? Students are generally on-task and attentive in the first minutes of a class, so you can use this time to plan for your portions of the lesson. Actively monitor students, whose attention may drift at this point. Do your best to keep students on-task and to maintain an environment conducive to learning English. Assist the foreign teacher with translations as necessary. Administer discipline as necessary in a non-disruptive fashion. Take over from the foreign teacher at this point and allow them to have a rest. Lead an activity that complements the prior lesson material and seems necessary and helpful to you – if you’ve noticed that the students still don’t pronounce the language correctly, lead a pronunciation drill or game. If the students can speak but not read or write, develop those skills. Students at this point will have an in-class break. Students may work on homework for other classes, play or talk quietly, or enjoy a snack. Students may go to the bathroom one at a time. This isn’t class time, and you don’t have to teach anything. Just keep them from killing one another or destroying or defacing school property. Your foreign teacher should be back. Have a break. Monitor the class. Administer discipline as necessary. Begin preparing the blue books. Ensure all blue books are filled in with homework and lesson aims. Prepare a short review activity or game. Take over from the foreign teacher at this point and allow them to write the blue books. Lead an activity that complements the prior lesson material and seems necessary and helpful to you.
