Even if you had plenty of practice writing lessons during your teacher training, it`s hard to be prepared for the avalanche of lesson planning you`ll have to do once your first year of teaching begins. To rev up the learning curve, here are eight questions to "think aloud" as you prepare lessons. The answers will help you create high-quality, on-target plans. At the beginning of the year, you`ll probably refer to the questions frequently, but after several months of planning, you`ll be a whiz. The process will become automatic!
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.
