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.
Outline the main topics or ideas you wish to cover during the lesson. The overview will function as the foundation upon which the lesson will be built. The curriculum you wish to cover may be too much for the time allotted. If this is the case, simply break your lesson plan into sections. This allows you to speed up or slow down depending on the amount of time remaining. Learning is dynamic. As you engage with students, encourage them to question and share ideas during the course of the class but be mindful of the time and the lesson plan. The lesson plan is your guide to ensure the learning goals you`ve set for your students are met in the time allowed.
