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).
As you may know, a lesson plan is a guide for teachers to present objectives that students will accomplish throughout the day. This keeps the classroom organized and ensures that all material is covered adequately. That includes concluding a lesson plan, a step that many teachers may overlook, especially if they are in a rush.
