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!
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.
