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.
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.
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.
