A Typical CELTA Day
The CELTA course daily routine timeline here at IH Izmir is like:
Six hours of observed teaching at two distinct levels, completed with detailed lesson plans, provides the opportunity to put everything you learn through input sessions, feedback sessions and experience into practice. Through eight, 45-minute lessons, trainees get the chance to build on previous lessons experience teaching a variety of lessons shapes and aims.
In addition to peer observations almost every day, trainees will have six hours of live observations of experienced teachers, in which they can see the techniques, lesson shapes and approaches in action.
GLP is when you have a one on one chat with your tutor about the upcoming teaching practice session. You bounce ideas off of them get ideas for activites and justify the choices you have made.
Following each Teaching Practice session, feedback is where trainees get a chance to reflect on their lessons, receive peer feedback and have their lessons deconstructed with the help of the tutors to identify areas of strengths and action points to focus on in the upcoming teaching sessions.
32+ sessions where the theoretical concepts, teaching approaches, lesson shapes, aspect of phonology, classroom management and many other aspects are covered by the tutors. The input sessions provide the trainees with the tools needed to deliver their lessons, while providing a deeper, more focused understanding of ELT.
Trainees are required to complete four assignments on the course. Ranging from focusing on the learners, to language and receptive skills, to self-reflection, this part of the course is where trainees demonstrate their research, data collection and academic writing skills to produce 750-1000 word pieces of writing. Each assignment comes with a resubmission, in which the trainees will have the opportunity to work on their action points based on tutor comments.
