1.1 – Why TELL and Why Now?

The Teacher Effectiveness for Language Learning framework (TELL) serves as the basis for our work in this course.  
Specifically, we’ll focus on one of the criteria of this framework that is concerned with planning.  Before we explore that criteria, let’s take a closer look at this framework, why we’ve chosen it, and it’s relevance for you as a language teacher teaching online or on-ground.

This introductory activity has several parts.  Before you begin, please read all of the Activity Details to ensure your understanding of how we’ll carry out this activity.

Watch the following video and consider how what you’re learning relates to your own planning.


When you’ve finished the video, visit the following link to rate the teacher segment you saw and to share how it relates to your own practice: 1.1 Video Reflection Form (Links to an external site.) before 11:59pm on Tuesday, June 16, 2015.  We’ll post the results and offer a reflection on the collective responses here sometime on Wednesday, June 17, 2015 via the Course Announcements block.
