Balance grouping strategies and activities in each learning style or multiple intelligence type so you are meeting the needs of all your students. Check with your principal for guidelines on when he or she will want to look at your lesson plans. Some principals make a point of viewing new teacher`s lesson plans on a weekly basis so they can provide on-the-spot assistance throughout the school year.
Questions to "Think Aloud" as You Prepare Lessons:
~ Students: What are the academic, social, physical, personal, and emotional needs of my students?
~ Strategies: Which teaching strategies will best facilitate my students learning?
~ Grouping: Should I group heterogeneously or homogeneously? What size should my groups be?
~ Timing: When is the best time to do this lesson? Are there prerequisites my students should have mastered?
~ Materials: What materials and human resources do I need for the lesson to be successful?
~ Success: Was the lesson successful? Were my students interested? Did my students learn? What didn`t work? What will I do differently next time?
~ Sequence: What can I do next to build upon this lesson? How can I make it flow?
~ Rationale: What is the reason for doing this? What objectives will be accomplished?
