Outline the main topics or ideas you wish to cover during the lesson. The overview will function as the foundation upon which the lesson will be built. The curriculum you wish to cover may be too much for the time allotted. If this is the case, simply break your lesson plan into sections. This allows you to speed up or slow down depending on the amount of time remaining. Learning is dynamic. As you engage with students, encourage them to question and share ideas during the course of the class but be mindful of the time and the lesson plan. The lesson plan is your guide to ensure the learning goals you`ve set for your students are met in the time allowed.
The lesson should begin with a topic derived from the adopted standards-based curriculum for a school or district. Because it relates to specific information the teacher is trying to impart, the topic should be part of the larger curriculum (such as unit instruction) required at your grade level. However, the specific topic for the lesson may emerge from student questions or interests (e.g., a lesson about the environment or space exploration), from community resources (e.g., the Rio Grande River, Manzano Mountains, Carlsbad Caverns), from local expectations included in the content standards (e.g., cattle ranching, New Mexico water rights, the connection between language and culture), and other topics listed in the standards (e.g., data analysis, geometry, life science).
