-use of diferent material: songs and chants, games, storytelling, etc.;
-consider strategies used in language testing.
|The lab will be carried out through lectures with the use of PowerPoint presentations, group work on the main topics analysed during the course and the development of lesson plans and teaching practice activities in class.|
|Verification of learning|
|Development of a lesson plan to be analysed during the oral exam that will also concern talking about topics related to the theory and practice of language teaching.|
The teaching practice activities done in class will be considered as part of the final exam.
