As a general rule, begin working on plans for the next week no later than Thursday. By then you will have an idea of which lessons weren`t completed, the objectives that need to be reinforced, and which upcoming school-wide activities need to be integrated into your plan. If you leave the planning until Friday after school, it may not get done!
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).
