Abstract

A study made on novice student-teachers by the National Council on Teaching Quality states that: “Without an adequate preparation, plenty of practice and clear feedback, the first year of teaching can feel like hitting a brick wall again and again”. Putman, Greenberg & Walsh (2014). The research project presented is a result of an effort to find ways to minimize or reduce the classroom management difficulties that novice students face when developing their teaching practice at CENIUES Kid’s Program due to the lack of preparation and experience in the area. Considering that even for senior teachers with lots of years of experience the daily business of teaching is really hard, what Putman, Greenberg & Walsh claim; supports the difficulties that Student-Teachers face while developing the teaching practice process. When novice student-teachers do not have the opportunity to observe and/ or have some previouspractice with some specific groups of learners (kids, teenagers, or adults) and learn from this experience, they are in disadvantage because they do not manage appropriate methodologies and teaching strategies, situation that can produce a sense of uncertainty during the practicum process. Taking into accountthe information above and based ona study related to the difficulties faced by Student-Teachers from the Bachelor of Arts in English with Emphasis in Teaching in 2016 which is mainly focused on student-teachers that carry out their practicum at CENIUES, researchers conclude that novice Student-Teachers face different types of obstacles such as: lack of classroom management strategies and not appropriate orientation by tutors. These difficulties coupled with the fact thatonly one of the Teaching English as a Foreign Languages’ (TEFL) courses syllabuses considers a few topics oriented to teach children, it can be said that Student Teacherslack of knowledge on how to work with them. So, guiding them appropriately with successful teaching skills thus crucially involve knowledge, decision-making and action( Fyriacou C. 2007). This will create a feeling of confidence when being in a classroom and definitely better results would be obtained at the end of the learning process.
