Assignment: Write a critical Incident

A critical incident is a significant event that happened in class that affected your thinking about how English should be taught or learned. A critical incident can be positive, negative, or neutral. It also does not have to be a big event. It can be a routine event that, upon reflection, had a significant impact on you. Your report should be two pages and double spaced. It should contain the following sections:

Orientation (What did you plan to do?)
This should be one paragraph. Please summarize your class. This should include your goal and a very brief description of the activities you planned to do.

Complication (What happened?)
The complication is your critical incident (Something that affected your thinking about teaching or learning English). Describe 2 or more complications.
The complication should include:
1) A description of what happened.
2) An analysis of why the incident happened.
3) How you reacted to the situation

Significance (What impact did these incidents have on you?)

This is the most important part!!!

You can discuss any of the following:

  • Explain how this incident effected your understanding about a theory or concept you learned in ETM 2 or ETM 3 +. Examples of theories or concepts are teaching grammar, approaches to language teaching (TBLT, CLT, PPP, CLIL, etc.), practice activities, exposure and focus on form,  assessment, etc..
  • Explain whether the incident led to a change in your teaching philosophy (See your EP).
  • Explain how this experience changed your understanding about yourself as a teacher.
