Lesson planning has become something of a lost art. In many places, lesson plans are provided, which has caused a deterioration in this essential skill. Lesson planning is not just making a to-do list for academics either — being able to make your own plan from scratch helps you better evaluate and adapt existing plans. In “Essentials for Teaching — Best Practices for Creating a Lesson Plan,” Lisa Van Gemert shares five practical tips for creating great lesson plans. It is time to dust off this forgotten tool and get back to writing your own plans.
In this course you will learn:
  • How to create a quality lesson plan
  • How to identify the parts of a lesson plan
  • How to evaluate your lesson plan
  • How to adapt lessons plans to the needs of your students
