CELTA Planner

Before you read this post, if you wanna know more about CELTA check out my posts: CELTA in a Nutshell and Why Do I need to take CELTA?
Summer has come, and with it comes the time when motivated teachers do their CELTA course. So, I’ve decided to create this planner to keep the candidates on track. Print it on an A3 sheet, and you are good to go!

There are 2 formats of the planner. One for the course of 8 TPs, and the other for 6 TPs. What does that mean??
Well, in the course you have to teach 6 observed hours. These 6 hours might be spread over 8 TPs (lessons), 6 TPs, or any other number. The most common ones are 8 and 6. That’s why you can find 2 formats, pick the one that you’ll be doing, and tick as you go!

The Calendar

You might wanna mark the days of your TPs on the calendar. Your TPs will be on either Tuesdays and Thursdays, or Wednesdays and Fridays (provided that your centers follows the 8 TPs format and not another one, like 6 TPs.)
If your course will have a different number of TPs, you might wanna ask your tutor/center about the days of your TPs so you can mark them on the calendar.

 

Action Points

I have created on the planner a spot for ‘Action Points’. Action points are the elements related to your teaching practice that you need to work on for the next TPs. They could be giving instructions, analyzing target language, using concept questions, monitoring, or any thing thing your tutor comments on in your TP Feedback.
I think it’s imperative that you write on the planner your action points, think about them, include them in your lesson objectives, and fulfill them to show that you are a developing and a reflective teacher.
You can download the planner from the following links. Feel free to share and comment 🙂
