Questions to "Think Aloud" as You Prepare Lessons:

~ Students: What are the academic, social, physical, personal, and emotional needs of my students?

~ Strategies: Which teaching strategies will best facilitate my students learning?

~ Grouping: Should I group heterogeneously or homogeneously? What size should my groups be?

~ Timing: When is the best time to do this lesson? Are there prerequisites my students should have mastered?

~ Materials: What materials and human resources do I need for the lesson to be successful?

~ Success: Was the lesson successful? Were my students interested? Did my students learn? What didn`t work? What will I do differently next time?

~ Sequence: What can I do next to build upon this lesson? How can I make it flow?

~ Rationale: What is the reason for doing this? What objectives will be accomplished?The teacher begins to plan each lesson by considering the studentsâ€™ characteristics as well as the learning context. This consideration entails a deep understanding of what he or she is to teach (content standards, standards-based curriculum, and guidelines), what students should be able to do, and what performance will look like when instruction has been completed. Lesson information includes not only the content but also the learning and developmental needs of the students. The teacher must consider the time he or she has to complete the lesson and other resources available, and should decide whether or not the lesson should take one class period or several.
