Alsalam Alykoum If you want to be a good English teacher , you should think of three stages : *1-Pre-teaching ( your preparation to the lesson and students’ interaction and reaction ) Most of our teachers neglect the first stage (pre-teaching) which I consider the most important stage because it helps you to be a self-confident teacher. You shouldn’t only prepare your lessons but also prepare yourself well to students’ expected and unexpected reactions and interaction . This makes students trust you and creates motivation from students for learning and prevents some problems dealing with discipline inside the classroom. *2-While-teaching (everything will happen inside the classroom ) *3-Post-teaching(self-evaluation) *****We will deal with all these stages in detail later. Actions that teachers take in first lessons: 1-Introduce yourself. 2-Students introduce themselves or each other or learn something about each other. 3-Establish a particular classroom atmosphere :cooperative and respectful. 4-Learn about learners’ expectations. 5-Establish a code of classroom conduct( acceptable behaviours , etc ).You and your students can set classroom rules because if the rules come from the students , they will be more willing to follow them then write the rules on a large sheet of paper and hung it in the classroom. This point is very important because it deals with classroom management which I will put it forward later . Note: What are your suggestions to maintain discipline inside classroom and what will you do if a student breaks the rules? 6-Present the course oint out important information about course ******* ,ways of working , assessment. 7-Pre-test students to assess their proficiency level.
