The teacher begins to plan each lesson by considering the students’ 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.
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!
