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.
Activate Background Knowledge. Set the stage by tapping into your students’ background knowledge – previous life experiences, prior learning, or both – to prepare them for the new concept you’re about to introduce. The point is to make connections between what your students already know and what you`re going to teach them. For example, if you`re about to present a lesson on using metaphors and similes in writing, start out by discussing what makes a story engrossing to a reader.
