 +=== Teacher Training Programme
 +
 +The exam topics for the ELT Methodology component of the final exam are based on two main sources.
 +
 +**1 Compulsory background reading**
 +
 +You are expected to have read thoroughly at least one of the basic EFL methodology publications:
 +
 +*    Harmer J. (1991/2007/2015). The practice of English language teaching. 2nd ed. London: Longman.
 +*    Scrivener, J. (1994/2005/2011) Learning Teaching. Macmillan Heinemann.
 +*    Ur, P. (1996/1999/2012). A course in language teaching. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. 
 +
 +(The alternative dates indicate the different editions available in the SEAS Library.)
 +
 +The reason for asking you to read (or re-read) one of these books is to give you a chance to review your experience in the light of what you read. At the examiners will be interested to hear about the basic principles described in the literature, but just as interested in your views on these principles with regard to your teaching experiences.
 +
 +**2 Readings related to ELT Methodology**
 +
 +These may come from readings set for the Methodology and Testing lecture series, Language Pedagogy options, Individual studies and your previous studies in this area. Please prepare to discuss one of these articles in part 2 of the exam.
 +
 +==== exam procedure
 +
 +Part 1: You will be asked to draw one of
 +[[.final_examination:topics:ma-teacher|the 13 topics]]. The examiner will then ask you specific questions or invite you to reflect on principles, concepts and practice.
 +
 +In part 2 you will be expected to talk about the article of your choice, highlighting key issues, explaining why you found them particularly insightful and relating them to your experience.
