Well structured secondary education plans typically begin with an outline of what the actual lesson is about. The basic information contained in the upper portion of secondary education plans includes aspects such as the mane of the unit, lesson, grade and the resources need to facilitate the lesson. It is important to note down what kind of skills the students are required in order for them to effectively undertake the stipulated course. Depending on the specified lesson plan, the students may need to have knowledge gained from prior lessons before they can commence.
Step one for any lesson plan would be an outline of the objectives of the lesson, the why of the lesson and its intended outcomes. Your objective would be stated as, for example, by the end of the five lessons, the student will understand the difference in usage between a statement, exclamation, command and a question. In addition, the student will make use of the correct punctuation marks to indicate the different sentence types.
Lesson plans are an effective tool in the hands of a teacher. If for some reason, a day is disrupted, you can simply refine or combine two lesson plans to cover the following day. A lesson plan must not restrict the flow of learning and teaching. If you have planned to cover a certain amount of work and fail to do so, there will always be an opportunity to move onto the concept in a follow-up lesson. Home school teachers who have difficulty being flexible, would be well advised to plan their work in lesson units and not individual lesson units.
