Do you ever share your LESSON PLANS with your IELTS learners?
…and have you considered sharing them IN ADVANCE?!
I’ve heard from some teachers who do, because as they say,
“I like my students to have the opportunity to prepare for the lessons so that they can be ‘the best’ they possibly can”.
I love how this practice might reinforce LEARNER AUTONOMY, and also emphasizes that learning is really not a ‘hierarchical’ endeavor but rather a relationship…
…in which one person is the FACILITATOR, as opposed to being the-bearer-of-all-wisdom on e.g. all things IELTS.
Sharing your lesson plans is also very much in tune with our times as well in that it’s ‘flipped’.
What do you think might be good reasons NOT to do this though… Any come to mind?
