19 Successful Online English Teachers Share Their Tips and Resources for Planning Online Lessons

Thanks to everyone who contributed! I receive A LOT of emails from online teachers (and online teachers to be) about planning; namely, what they should include in their lessons and what resources they should use. As there are many areas of English and different teaching methods, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. What I do and what I use might not work for you and your learners. However, there are some common practices and amazing resources that you can use in your online lessons. And as a way of celebrating the incredible teachers who create their own content so that we can use it with our students, I have put together this super post. I asked 19 online teachers for a tip or an app when it comes to lesson planning, and for them to share their resource. As well as being a handy guide for you, this might also inspire you too to create content for your learners (if you’re not doing this already). (At the bottom of the post there is a chance for you to add your own resources.) Gabby Wallace
