Description

Hello fellow teachers and welcome to our course!!


In this course I will teach you all I've learnt in my five years of TEFL teaching experience.


You will learn the theory behind education, how to create a lesson plan and how to manage your classroom. I will also discuss the difference between an online and offline classroom. I will also include tons of activities and games for your classes. I've also included tons of lesson examples, videos on different activities, and my own theory of education.


I will discuss the theories of Behaviorism, Cognitivism and Constructivism. I will also discuss the theory of Multiple Intelligences, and Piaget's four stages of development. I wanted to included these pedagogies (educational theories), so that we can help you define your own teaching style.


I will also teach you about Teaching Methods (strategies to use to teach a class). I will share examples and also give you examples of how to implement them in your lessons.


I will also teach you 10 classroom management strategies, with some of them being developed by yours truly! These will help you to motivate your students and help you maintain a fun learning environment.


I hope you enjoy our course and welcome to the wonderful world of TEFL! Let's get you started on your journey!
