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).
Understand who you are going to educate. Anticipate various learning styles (visual, auditory, tactile or a combination). Tailor your lesson plan to incorporate all learning styles through independent and group exercises. If you are familiar with the student`s group dynamics you may choose to plan ahead of time to increase engagement and interaction. Keep in mind that you may alter any activity to be done independently, in pairs, or in small groups. Depending on the amount of time and size of the class you can be selective or mix it up and use all of these techniques.
