Lesson planning for ESL/ESOL teachers. Boost creativity and interactivity for online teaching Learn English

A lesson plan for Esl/esol classes has a logical structure starting with a warmer, intro to a topic, activation of previous knowledge. pre-teaching of some vocabulary or grammar ( 3–5 items, if necessary). Ask questions, explain meaning of words/grammar within a context, practice pronunciation, check understanding, write and show other forms of a word/grammar, highlight phonology Presentation of a text, audio, video or a picture. Simple gist question, following some specific questions about the material Controlled practice. Check understanding of the material/vocabulary or grammar rules. The examples are gap-fill exercises, true or false, etc. Freer practice. Here students should use their own ideas within the specific context. For example, complete sentences with your ideas, describe the picture relevant to target vocabulary/grammar Production, the final step. It is usually expressing an opinion about the topic, advice, prediction. You can tell your students your own opinion before the task as an example. Don't forget to use target language. Special questions including target language can be formed to start a discussion. It is a standard lesson plan using the traditional model PPP (presentation, practice, production) and CELTA methodology. More suitable for beginners, elementary and intermediate learners. You can find the examples of the video lesson plans using this model on my website. There are lesson plans for elementary, pre-intermediate and intermediate learners. Topics include health, food, character and personality, daily life, social issues, culture, business vocabulary, IELTS preparation. Problem is where to have a learning space for online lessons  -platforms: zoom, Google, etc.  Why not to make lessons, use, reuse and make available for thousands of people  Everything is on one page. -blogs, website, Google slides, padlet youtube, and even a podcast All of these platforms have their share of interactivity. My choice is a website with lots of tools: videos, tests, audios and text can be all on one single page.  If you buy a website address (domain) it will be your forever, although with platforms which are not yours, your content can be removed and you cannot actually own 100% of your content. What is interactivity online When we think about interactivity, first thing i think is interactive exercises. Where I can click and move things with my finger and of course auto check. What I think about interactivity is really about getting students engaged via communication,  visuals,  constantly activate students, besides just interactive exercises  Creativity and interactivity when teaching online: should be mostly about (go to the outside world), and communication with people especially for adults and more confident learners Communicating with other people: Facebook and YouTube (sending posts and comments  Comment youtube videos Ask instagram followers Real-time interaction Discussion boards During an online lesson interactivity can be facilitated with  Clicking on Links Tests Games Games: role play, play a famous person  Board games Jam board, miro board Padlet Pinterest How to expand creativity To try something new  Flip lessons  Give them a choice Encourage autonomy  Incorporate their interests  Inconventional learning materials: youtube comments, cafe reviews on Facebook, shopping websites, blogs, ask a blogger for audio on their piece
