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.
Once you know what work you will be covering in the semester which lies ahead, you can move to weekly and then daily planning. A lesson plan must be a tool to assist you to be thoroughly prepared for the lesson itself. You can decide to spend a week on one topic, for example, an introduction to sentence types; then your weekly plan will simply be further divided into daily objectives and activities.
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.
