Unit 30: Teacher roles

28 Jun

Teachers needs to behave in different ways at different stages of a lesson to manage the classroom and to successfully guide learners through the lesson. These different ways of behaving in and managing the class are called teacher roles. Teachers adopt (use) a number of different roles in every lesson. Teacher roles vary depending on the teaching approach (way of teaching) used and on the teachers’ and learners’ preferred learning styles and learning needs.

Let’s find out the teacher roles during a lesson.

In the exercise below you will find the next vocabulary:
