Teacher Training Program

This program is not intended for native English speakers. 

The Teacher Training Program under International Programs is a multi-phased module based program that will combine residential classroom based instruction in the summer with optional online training in the fall to assist participants in implementing the strategies they learned in their home institutions.  TTP gives practicing and aspiring teachers of middle school to college English as a foreign language the opportunity to develop their confidence in classroom English, learn new techniques for teaching, and practice integrating literature into their teaching. 

Each phase will improve the academic English of participants while reviewing essential elements of pedagogy.  Lessons will model the theoretical concepts and research-based strategies being taught as well as build upon the teaching skills that each participant possesses.  Each phase will provide essential resources to participants, creating a critical foundation for participants to improve their teaching ability.
