In this post I will present a sample of a lesson plan that I personally use. But before you proceed reading, you might be interested to know why teachers need lesson plans.
Although a lesson plan doesn’t necessarily equate a successful lesson, it will undoubtedly ensure a coherent view of the teaching procedure in the teacher’s mind. A well organized lesson plan serves as a guideline for managing the learning process and outlines beforehand the decisions he must make about the methods, techniques strategies and procedures he opted for.
A lesson plan should include the following points:
- Lesson / unit number and title
- The course (reading, listening, dictation, …)
- Instructional aids , materials and tool needed
- The goals or standards
- the lesson outline
- The timing.
- Assignments (class or home assignment)
Here is a lesson plan sample:
|Objectives / Standards …|
|Instructional tools, materials, aids|
Lesson plans are not the bible. Unpredictable events happen in the classroom. Teachers should be ready at any moment to change ,add or improvise lesson delivery.
