Quick Tip: Lesson Plan

I don't have the fondest memories of writing lesson plans when I was studying to become a teacher. Come to think of it, I probably spent more time planning the lesson than teaching it. However, when you're writing a lesson plan for a grade and writing it because you're trying to organise yourself, there's a big difference.

Lesson plans are very useful as they can help keep you on track and know what to do in your class. They don't have to be super elaborate, just a couple of notes or sentences about what page you'll go over or what activities you'll do in class.

I never used to keep my lesson plans. I just started keeping a binder with lesson plans. They've got clear sheets. I put the lesson plan in and then behind it I put the supplementary material. One page is one day. It's great because you can easily modify it and don't have to frantically search for supplementary material at the last minute.

Got an idea for a quick tip?
Email me with your quick tip, name, and website (if you have one) and I'll post it ASAP.
