Teachers or employees, whether they are teaching on site or at home, always know that a smooth lesson or a smooth class can only be possible if you come prepared. It goes without saying, there is a thin line between a good lesson and a chaotic one, and the only thing that could help it from becoming chaotic is a good lesson plan. However, when you write your lesson plan, you must remember to cater it to your students as they are your audience. Now the important questions, why is a lesson plan necessary, what is a student lesson plan and how do you begin writing a student lesson plan? A lot of questions with the need for an answer? Check out the article and the examples below.
First of all, what is a student lesson plan? A student lesson plan is like an action plan for teachers. A roadmap that helps teachers find and figure out how to run daily activities to students. It is the key to learning how to handle your class and to make it fun and educational as possible. A student lesson plan caters to the needs of the students, depending on their level and the subject that you are teaching. In addition to that, a student lesson plan also outlines what you are planning on teaching for the whole week, how long each class is going to be, what your activities are you going to be doing as well as the progress of each student. All these are done as well as achieving the learning objectives you have written down.
The purpose of writing down a student lesson plan is to make the class and the lesson run smoothly. The other purpose of writing is it serves as a guideline for you as the teacher to check how the class would look like. In addition to that, it is also a useful tool that gives you a detailed look on what your lessons may be, how you are going to tackle the lessons and a tool to check how far the student has learned the lesson. Basically, the importance of writing a student lesson plan is to understand how far the student has learned the lesson. Running a class as smoothly as possible and being able to teach a class without having any issues as the lesson plan acts as a roadmap or an action plan for teachers.
You may probably wonder how do teachers or your professors write a student lesson plan. How are they able to make the lesson plan work for their advantage but at the same time cater to the needs of their students? It is no secret that writing a lesson plan can be a bit tricky especially if you have no idea where to begin and how to make it cater to the needs of your students. However, before you panic, I want you to check out the following below.
First and foremost, when you are writing down your lesson plan, always remember to write the title of your lesson. The title of your lesson is the main reason for doing a lesson plan in the first place. It is also the most important part of the lesson plan. The title of the lesson is your guide as to what you may want to be discussing and it also helps you write out your objectives.
Your objectives must be based on your lesson as well as to catering the needs of your students. Your objectives must also be realistic enough that it is possible to achieve them. Your objectives are also the second most important part of your lesson plan, besides the title of your lesson. In addition to that, your objectives must cater to the lesson and to cater to the activities you may be setting out for the lesson.
The details of your lesson plan must be specific enough for you to understand them. The details of your lesson plan must include your time frame, your teaching materials, the stages or activities of your lesson and the evaluation. Each of these details must include the information you need to write your lesson plan.
For any lesson plan to be complete, writing down activities that are both educational and informative is best. The activities are there to let you see if your students have learned something. However, you must also be careful with what activity you may be doing. Your activities must cater to their level, their knowledge and their needs in general. In addition to that, the activities must also cater to the objectives you have written in the lesson plan.
Before you can say you are finished, double check your lesson plan. See to it that your lesson plan caters to your students’ levels, knowledge of the topic and basically their needs. In addition to that, make sure that your lesson plan has all the necessary things needed like your lesson title, objectives, time frame, and the assessment. As these are the essential parts of the lesson plan itself.
A student lesson plan is a kind of action plan for teachers that they write to cater to a student’s educational needs. It is also a kind of road map for teachers to see where they are able to cater to the student’s needs in more ways than one.
A student lesson plan is a road map for teachers to check and see where the needs of the students are met. It is also necessary to write one in order to lessen the problem of not being able to meet or to cater to the needs of the students.
Avoid using jargon that is unfamiliar and hurtful. What should also be avoided is forgetting to write the objectives of your lesson plan. As this is the second most important part and should not be forgotten.
Making lesson plans to fit the needs of your students is never an easy task. Let alone if you are teaching from home. Your lesson plan must be able to meet the needs, and must also be able to fit the lesson you are planning on teaching. What should also be avoided when you are writing your lesson plan is unfamiliar jargon. Your lesson plan should not be shared by your students, as it is only made for you to check. Your road map of a lesson plan should be kept out of your students’ reach.
