TKT candidates are encouraged to keep a portfolio, a record of
their professional development and reflections on their
teaching. Through their portfolio candidates can become
reflective practitioners, analysing their teaching and how this
impacts on their students learning. However, the portfolio
does not form part of the assessment for TKT. The Teacher
Portfolio is Cambridge ESOLs free online system that any
teacher can use to record and document their career progress.

Lesson planning and use of
MODULE 2 resources for language teaching

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Module format Module 2 consists of two parts.

Timing 1 hour 20 minutes

No. of questions 80

Task types Objective tasks, such as one-to-one matching; 3/4/5-option matching;


sequencing; 3-option multiple choice and odd one out.

Answer format For all parts of this module, candidates indicate their answers by shading
the correct lozenges on their answer sheets.
Candidates should use a pencil and mark their answers firmly.
Candidates should use an eraser to rub out any answer they wish to change.

Marks Each question carries one mark.

 Syllabus

This module focuses on what teachers consider and do while planning their teaching
of a lesson or series of lessons. Teaching in this context is intended also to refer to
assessment. It focuses too on the linguistic and methodological reference resources that
are available to guide teachers in their lesson planning as well as on the range and
function of materials and teaching aids that teachers could consider making use of in
their lessons. Knowledge of any particular book is not required.

Part Title Areas of teaching knowledge Task types and format


Planning and Lesson planning 5-6 tasks consisting of approximately 40 questions
1 preparing a lesson identifying and selecting aims appropriate to learners,
or sequence of the stage of learning and lesson types Tasks include one-to-one matching; 3/4/5-option
lessons identifying the different components of a lesson plan matching; 3-option multiple choice; odd one out and
planning an individual lesson (or a sequence of lessons) sequencing.

 Part 1

This part of Module 2 tests candidates knowledge of the relationship between activities and
aims. It also tests knowledge of ways of sequencing activities within and across lessons in a
2
manner appropriate to particular groups of learners, and of selecting appropriate assessment
activities to build into (a series of) lessons.

Candidates need to demonstrate an understanding of concepts and terminology related to:

Syllabus area Possible testing focus


identifying and selecting lesson aims main, subsidiary and personal aims
specification of aims
factors influencing the choice of aims
identifying the different components the standard components of a lesson plan: aims, procedures, stages, timing, aids, anticipated problems,
of a lesson plan assumptions, interaction patterns, timetable fit

planning an individual lesson or common sequences, e.g. structures, skills, topic, project
sequence of lessons

choosing assessment activities informal or formal assessment and related tasks and activities

 Part 2

This part of Module 2 tests candidates knowledge of how to make use of resources, materials and
aids in their lesson planning.

Candidates need to demonstrate an understanding of concepts and terminology related to the


following and their implications for the L2 classroom:

Syllabus area Possible testing focus


using reference resources for lesson the range of resources available and teachers reasons for consulting them
preparation

the selection and use of coursebook criteria for selection


materials ways of adapting materials

the selection and use of types of supplementary materials and activities


supplementary materials and reasons for use
activities
how to select and adapt

the selection and use of teaching types of aids and their teaching functions

 Syllabus

This module tests candidates knowledge of what happens in the classroom in terms
of the language used by the teacher or learners, the roles the teacher can fulfil and
the ways in which the teacher can manage and exploit classroom events and interaction.

 Part 1

3 This part of Module 3 tests candidates knowledge of the functions of classroom language, and how
to adapt teacher language according to its audience and purpose. It also tests candidates
knowledge of the appropriacy of teachers classroom language, how to analyse learners language
and categorise learners errors.

Candidates need to demonstrate an understanding of concepts and terminology related to:

Syllabus area Possible testing focus


the functions commonly used by the identification of a range of classroom functions and typical exponents
teacher in the classroom appropriacy of use, e.g. degrees of simplicity of language, appropriateness of sequencing, degrees of formality,
use of L1
identifying the functions of language identification of common functions and typical exponents
used by learners in the classroom identification of communicative purpose
(tasks may involve analysis of learner appropriacy of use
language which is not completely
accurate)
categorising learners mistakes categorising types of mistakes, e.g. spelling, wrong verb form, subject-verb agreement

 Part 2

This part of Module 3 tests candidates knowledge of the range and function of strategies available
to a teacher for managing classes in ways appropriate to learners and to teaching and learning
aims. These include variety of activity and pace, ways of grouping learners, techniques for
correcting learners mistakes and the roles a teacher can fulfil at different stages of the lesson.

Candidates need to demonstrate an understanding of concepts and terminology related to the


following and their implications for the L2 classroom:

Syllabus area Possible testing focus


the roles of the teacher common teacher roles, e.g. manager, diagnostician, planner
functions of teacher roles, e.g. managing the teaching space, establishing systems for praise and reward,
establishing rules, routines and procedures; analysing learners needs; building variety into lessons,
planning lessons to meet learners needs

grouping learners common classroom interaction patterns and their uses


grouping of learners and reasons for this

correcting learners methods of oral and written correction, and their appropriacy of use

giving feedback the focus and purpose of feedback


ways of giving feedback
