Pre-requisites: EAS6156, EAS6157

Aims/Description: This module provides students opportunities to do teaching practice at levels from elementary to advanced, with guidance and feedback from tutors. With the guidance of tutors, students learn how to set objectives for individual lessons, plan courses, select and prepare materials, teach effectively to achieve the lesson aims, and assess students language learning. Each student will observe at least two hours of their mentor teachers classes, and do two 20-minute sessions of mock teaching in the Autumn semester. They will then teach six hours, to a range of levels depending on their own research and teaching interests, in a school or other educational institution in Sheffield during the Spring Semester. Two of these teaching hours will be observed and assessed by a tutor. Students are required to undertake DBS checks.
