All good lesson plans contain specific components or steps, and all essentially derive from the seven-step method developed by Madeline Hunter, a UCLA professor and education author. The Hunter Method, as it came to be called, includes these elements: objective/purpose, anticipatory set, input modeling/modeled practice, check for understanding, guided practice, independent practice, and closure.
However, developing a strong closure, which is the fifth step in writing a strong and effective 8-step lesson plan for elementary school students, is the key to classroom success. As we have previously outlined, defining the Objective, Anticipatory Set, Direct Instruction and Guided Practice, are the first four steps, leaving the Closure section as a method which provides a fitting conclusion and context for the student learning that has taken place.
