Print out, photocopy and cut up… But is that what you really want?
On the support group we have for our CELTA course trainees, someone recently asked where they could find sites from which they could download lesson plans.
What would my tutor think…?
Remember, however, that there's an awful lot of rubbish out there in cyberspace. I'd suggest, before you download material, that you should ask yourself (among other questions) what your CELTA course tutor would have thought of it?
Whether or not the site carries Google-is-Evil ads is another consideration I might make. It does? It may be that its primary interest is to make money, not to improve your teaching…
Don't search, have things come to you
Personally, as I prefer to have things come to me, rather than having to search for them, I'd really recommend the free materials by email the ELT publishers will send out to you (in the image above, materials in my mailbox from OUP).
Is it lesson plans you really want…?
My doubt about such things is whether or not downloadable lesson plans are actually what you should be looking for.
It would be nice just to be able to get free, ready-to-print, ready-to-use stuff and not have to think further about the lessons we are teaching. But I think there is — or there ought to be! — a lot more to good language teaching than that.
Do you want to print and photocopy vocabulary worksheets — or is really the ideas, how to teach vocabulary that you really need…?
