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).
Regardless of the grade level you teach, Hunter`s model has been adopted and used in various forms for decades by teachers across the nation and at every grade level. Follow the steps in this method, and you`ll have a classic lesson plan that will be effective at any grade level. It doesn`t have to be a rigid formula; consider it a general guideline that will help any teacher cover the necessary parts of a successful lesson.
