TESOL 555 TESOL Materials Development and Selection

TESOL 555 is the last course in the series of the TESOL Certificate Program. It introduces students to a needs-based, learner-centered approach to selecting, adapting, supplementing, and developing classroom materials for the adult learner of English. During the course candidates complete four observation hours in an ESL classroom and analyze and reflect on how materials are created, used, and supplemented. Candidates evaluate various classroom materials and create original materials for each of the four language skill areas in reading, writing, listening, and speaking, in addition to grammar and pronunciation. As a final project, candidates create a lesson plan using materials generated in this course and they reflect critically on professional practice while sharing their knowledge and experience with peers.
