Sample Lesson Plans:
The following lesson was written for a graduate-level oral English class. It promotes learner autonomy by introducing students to several websites they can use to improve segmental pronunciation. By using the websites, students are able to analyze pronunciation outside of class without the help of the teacher and choose the sounds that are most relevant to them.
The following lesson was written for a low-intermediate-level oral English class. It teaches the segmental pronunciation of /v/, /f/, and /w/ using a communicative framework. The video below shows highlights from me teaching the lesson in a training course for Chinese professors.
The following lesson was written for an English writing course for sophomore English major university students. It teaches students to write notes for the standardized Test for English Majors- Band 4 (TEM-4) which students are required to take in the spring semester of their sophomore year.
Sample Course Design:
The following course design was created for a year-long graduate-level course titled simply "Improve English Proficiency." The course design explains the context of the course and reasons for my decision to focus the course on teaching oral English and learner autonomy skills.
Sample Pronunciation Analysis:
For the following pronunciation needs assessment, I analyzed the pronunciation of a native Mandarin advanced learner of English and made recommendations for his future instruction. The recommendations can also be applied to other advanced English learners.
