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.
However, developing a strong closure, which is the fifth step in writing a strong and effective 8-step lesson plan for elementary school students, is the key to classroom success.
