Teacher Training Toolkit

Teachers love to learn! Check out the teacher training toolkit modules below to develop your teaching skills in a variety of different areas. Each module contains a short reading, a video, video reflection questions, and a follow-up classroom task with reflection questions. Work through the modules independently, or join together with other teachers to discuss, reflect, and develop as a team. 

The topics covered in the toolkit will help you to develop your skills as an adult ESL teacher, whether you are a classroom assistant, teach small groups, one-to-one, or lead large classes.

If you have any technical issues with downloading the toolkit reading texts, or questions about how to use them in your program, please contact Andrea Echelberger at aechelberger@mnliteracy.org



Giving Directions

In this module, learn how to apply the I-We-You method when giving activity instructions. The gradual release of responsibility used in this method provides a straightforward framework for giving directions, improves learner understanding, and increases participation and engagement.
