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 two of drawing up a lesson plan would be for the teacher to decide what resources will be needed for the lesson. The home school teacher might make use of a simple storybook to start. Thereafter, a series of worksheets for discussion might follow. Finally, the lesson might conclude with an assessment task, to ascertain how well the student has understood the work covered.
Step three of compiling a lesson plan must assist the home school teacher to envisage the lesson as a unit of time. Each lesson should in reality have an introduction with introductory activities such as questions posed verbally; followed by a body of the lesson with further activities and exercises. One should also always have a clear conclusion in mind, to summarize and tie up the new concepts covered for the student.
