The New English Curriculum & Textbook Analysis Group Project (40%) Rationale for and overview of this component I see the group project session as an opportunity for all of you to draw on
your basic understanding of “Go for It” to the teaching practices of this textbook. This is also a way for you to contribute to the learning of your peers and a project out of some practical considerations especially the time constraint. In preparing for your group project, please do keep in mind that this is NOT an exclusive working load for the particular student who is going to do the demo lesson. Since the presentation is a group effort, its success depends in large part on your ability to collaborate with each other as you negotiate the planning, delivery and review of the presentation. While collaboration can indeed be a challenge, you should capitalize on its strengths, given that it encourages the bringing together of multiple views, roles, talents and degrees of prior knowledge about English teaching. In a nutshell, every one of your group is supposed to undertake a meaningful part to achieve the completion and success of the project.
Below are some guidelines for you to follow. I will bear these in mind when assessing your presentation. ? A DETAILED lesson plan is required. Please bring the hard copy of your lesson plan on the day of your presentation. The appendix is a sample lesson plan for your reference concerning the discourse organization. ? You may wish to use ppt slides. But my caveat is that they are only a teaching aid which should not take over the role of the teacher. Use them when and only when there is a MUST. Other means of teaching aids such as worksheets, pictures on paper, real objects, flashcards, etc. are more interactive, and appealing to young students. ? Each demo-lesson should last between 25 to 30 minutes (although a real class normally lasts for 40 or 45 minutes). The condensed teaching time takes the “students’” quick response and perfect classroom performance into consideration. ? Please keep track of the time yourselves. If you are not sure whether you have prepared too much, it’s a good idea to do a practice run-through. Please do NOT aim to do too
much. It is not necessary, and this is meant to be an enjoyable task, not a daunting one. ? An after-class reflection, as I said, is an important component to be assessed. This reflection will document every member’s contribution to the group task (individual and with other members), the difficulties you encountered when working on the group task, and the lessons learned in completing the group task as a team. It will, more importantly, include your remarks on the demo lesson concerning its strengths and weaknesses. ELABORATE on them by providing reasons (why you think the lesson is / isn’t effective) and giving suggested solutions were you given another chance to teach. ? Word limit of the reflection is 500 (in English). Submit it to me ONE WEEK after the presentation in both hard and soft copy. ? All documents you submit should be processed using Microsoft Word software, with the font of Time News Roman, size of 12, double spaced, and 1 inch (or 2.54 cm) margin from all sides.
