Here is a short clip of me doing a mock clarification stage... there are no students in the room - I'm just pretending. This was a demo for an online hybrid CELTA course.... if it helps, check it out. About 10 minutes.

Gentle Reminder:

Lesson Plans absolutely need to be in our mailboxes by 12:00 noon at the latest.

Please make sure that any remaining lesson planning you need to do gets done tonight - not during the day tomorrow.

Here is the link to the Social Justice in ELT book. You get a discount if you are a TESOL member.

My colleague (Lavette Coney) wrote chapter 2.

Reminder: WEDNESDAY is external observation day.

You will be spending 2 hours of your morning observing classes at Embassy Boston Study Center near the Boston Common. Then you will have a break until afternoon TP. Use this time to make adjustments to your LP and to work on any written assignments.
You will need to observe from 8:30am - 10:10am and will log two hours in your CELTA 5. Please arrive at Embassy by 8:15am at the latest and make a good impression both for yourselves and for Teaching House:)

Please be sure to write the name of the teacher you observe on the feedback form.

A few things about observation: There is an external observation form in your Teaching House Handbook specifically for this purpose. Please bring it with you and fill it out.

This center occasionally hires CELTA graduates and also recommends teachers to us to do the CELTA, so many of the teachers do teach in "the CELTA way":) However, not all teachers are CELTA certified and they may not teach exactly in a “CELTA format” that you are used to. See what you can get out of this. Think about alternatives and variations and think about what you might be able to “borrow” from the teachers you are observing. Gather evidence for your LFC☺

Here is a map and a link to directions. Please, please, please do not show up late.
