Teachers Teach Teachers - Year 2

We launched the project in June 2019, uniting more than 100 teachers in their wish to develop the language of teaching and practice teaching skills through applying Lexical Approach to students who are colleagues.

The second academic year follows the programme of Outcomes Advanced and we have prepared fantastic webinars for you! The year will be split between 3 areas - Lexical Approach, Psychology for English teachers and practical webinars delivered by TTT participants.

Teachers Teach Teachers is a community for us, teachers. We offer TTT as a safe space for growth and professional development.

We've planned your CPD for the next 3 years!

Teachers Teach Teachers

We combine practicing English (we teachers need it all the time, don't we?) with teaching practice (for supervision and experience exchange). This is how the project Teachers Teach Teachers emerged. In short – TTT.

The idea is very simple: TTT participants work in groups of no more than 10 (online and offline), take Outcomes Advanced textbook and set off on a journey across the vast lexical fields of the English language.

Members of the group take turns to teach the group (every month a new teacher), for the rest of the time teachers become students.

At the end of each lesson (or a month) the current teacher can receive feedback from the colleagues and discuss the lesson from the point of view of both students and teachers.

About TTT project

What is included into programme per month:

Community

HOW TTT PROJECT WORKS:

The participants meet for a lesson once a week. The point is to study in the group and change the teacher every month. Every participant becomes the teacher at some point and receives feedback from the colleagues.Platform

Rules and regulations of TTT

How regular groups work:

- We apply lexical approach and we use hard copies of Outcomes Advanced 2nd edition
- The group meets once a week for 90 minutes
- Every month one from the group becomes the Teacher. If you feel insecure, take your turn later. Anyway, we provide support throughout the whole teaching month.
- If the Teacher asks for it, group participants can give their feedback after every lesson or after the whole month of teaching. If the Teacher doesn't want it, then no, no pressure.
- We teach and communicate in English only

How it is organised:

- we use hard copies of Students' book Outcomes Advanced 2nd Edition and it's obligatory. Workbook is optional.
- Offline groups share the fare for the rent (unless they find a free place for lessons).
- Online groups work in Zoom; we provide everything that is needed, including a crash course for newbies.
- The maximum amount of participants in a group is 10
- We accept new participants once a month (from 16th till 26th of each month).
