Certificate Programme in the Teaching of English
as a Second Language
Course Code: CTE
Dear Student,
We hope you enjoyed reading this course and found it useful in applying it to your teaching practice.
In order to help you understand the material better and prepare you for the examination later, we have an assignment for each of the courses. All the assignments are Tutor Marked Assignments (TMAs) and carry 100 marks each.
Aims: The TMAs are mainly concerned with your ability to understand the material and apply it meaningfully in your teaching. These assignments are as much a teaching device as a testing tool.
Guidelines: You will be required to answer the questions based on the units and your understanding of the teaching-learning process. Do not reproduce chunks of information from the units.
As in day-to-day life, planning is important in doing the assignments well. Read the assignments carefully; go through the units on which they are based; jot down some points regarding each question and then re-arrange them in a logical order. In an essay-type answer, allot adequate space to your introduction and conclusion. The introduction must tell the evaluator how you interpret the given topic and how you propose to develop it. The conclusion must summarize your views on the topic. You should write in your own handwriting.
Make sure that your answer:
a) is logical;
b) is written in simple and correct English;
c) is written neatly and clearly.
d) reflects your understanding of the teaching-learning situation.
Please remember that it is compulsory to submit your assignments before you can take the Term End Exams. Also remember to keep a copy of your assignments with you and do take a receipt from your Study Centre when you submit the assignments.
Last Date for Submission of Assignment:
For June Exam 31st March
For December Exam 30th September
Also remember that only one course can be taken from CTE-04 and CTE-05. In this assignment booklet we are including both of them but you should attempt only the one you have taken.
Good Luck!
Note: Remember the submission of assignment is a precondition for appearing in the examination. If you do not submit the assignment on time, you will not be allowed to appear in the examination.

20
The boy was barely five years old.
We sent him to the little school
And left him there to learn the names
Of flowers in jam jars on the sill
And learn to do as he was told.
He seemed quite happy there until
Three weeks afterwards, at night,
The darkness whimpered in his room.
I went upstairs, switched on his light,
And found him wide awake, distraught,
Sheets mangled and his eiderdown
Untidy carpet on the floor.
I said “Why can’t you sleep? A pain?
He snuffled, gave a little moan,
And then he spoke a single word:
‘Jessica.’ The sound was blurred.
‘Jessica? What do you mean?
‘A girl at school called Jessica,
She hurts’ – he touched himself between
The heart and stomach – ‘she has been
Aching here and I can see her.’
Nothing I read or heard
Instructed me in what to do.
I covered him and stroked his head.
‘The pain will go, in time.’ I said.
by Vernon Scannell
