Unit 25: Selecting and use of supplementary materials and activities.

07 Jun

Howdy everyone!

Do teachers have to use supplementary materials? As we saw in the previous unit, sometimes coursebooks are not according at all with the syllabus or there is not enough and good material for learners to practice or for teachers to teach. Thus, teachers have to find those activities that could help them to improve and to extend the information, in order to help students with further practice.

There are some important reasons why we might use supplementary materials:

  • to replace unsuitable material in the coursebook
  • to provide material missing from the coursebook
  • to provide suitable material for learners’ particular needs and interests
  • to give learners extra language or skills practice
  • to add variety to our teaching

Even though, there are some advantages and disadvantages while using supplementary materials, let’s find them out on the next exercise…
