Classroom management considerations to help TEFL teachers with close control practice activities: correction 3.

When a TEFL teacher is monitoring a close control activity, correction is an important part of the teacher’s role. However, it should be noted that it is very important to be selective in the error correction. As has been discussed in previous articles, the activity is designed to focus on the target language being taught, with relatively little use of peripheral language in order to achieve the task. This means then that we should focus on only correcting the target language rather than other language.

Obviously, if there are glaring generalised errors in form or pronunciation of parts of language other than the target language, then these shouldn’t be ignored, but we must be looking closely at this stage at the trees, not the wood!
