					A lesson plan is…
• …a teacher's detailed description
  of the course of instruction for an
  individual lesson.
• …it tells what to do, in what order
  to do it, and what procedure to use
  in teaching the material of a lesson.
Lesson plans answer 3
questions..
• Where are my students going
  (objectives)?

 How are they going to get there
 (activities & teaching methods &
 strategies)?


 How will I know when they've
 arrived (assessment)?
      Lesson Plan Organization:
     Begin with the end in mind..
•What do you want the students to learn from this
lesson?

•What standards are you meeting?

•What does the state or your district require?

•What age students are you trying to reach?

•How are you going to assess that learning?

•Once you've determined this, write a quick
description and list out your objectives for the
assignment.
The 6 Step Lesson Cycle
         1. The lesson cycle is a way
            of organizing a lesson.
         2. You may read about
            several “versions” and
            different interpretations of
            the lesson cycle.
         3. Today we will examine
            one lesson cycle model
            adapted from the work of
            Madeline Hunter.
6 + 1 Steps of The Lesson
          Cycle
             1. Focus – motivation/
                 Anticipatory Set
             2. Objective
             3. Direct Instruction
             4. Guided practice
             5. Independent
                 practice &
                 assessment
             6. Closure
             + 1 = Required Materials
                 & Equipment
          1. Focus/Motivation/
             Anticipatory Set
This is an activity, an
item, or event to get the
students’ attention and
interest and relate the
lesson to prior learning
or knowledge:
• Pictures
• Items of interest
• Stories
• Questions
             2. Objectives
• Statements of what the
  students will know or be able to
  do at the end of the lesson
  (may take more than 1 day).
• Must be clearly defined,
  measurable and in line with
  district and/or state
  educational standards.
• Use Bloom’s Taxonomy as a
  guide to writing objectives.
              2. Objectives
EXAMPLES:
• By the end of the class
  period the student will
  state and briefly explain
  the steps of the “Hunter
  Lesson Cycle Model.”
• The student-intern will
  apply or use appropriate
  steps of a Lesson Cycle
  when making lesson plans
  for his/her host school.
        3. Direct Instruction
This section explicitly delineates
how you will present the
lesson's concepts to your
students.
Teachers should use a variety
of instructional strategies suited
to the class and to individual
students & their learning styles
and individual needs.
        •   Lectures – verbal explanations
        •   Demonstrates/models
        •   Uses audio-visual presentation
        •   Hands – on activities
        •   What are some others?
.
       3. Direct Instruction

During DI, the teacher
moves the student
from what he/she
knows to what the
teacher wants him/her
to learn (i.e., the lesson
objective).
                Apply what you have
                     learned….

• Principles of Development
• Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs/ Student
  Basic Needs
• Piaget’s Intellectual/Cognitive
  Developmental Stages
• Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences
• Individual Learning Styles
• Various teaching methods
   3. Direct Instruction

GOAL: During
 D.I. the
 students are
 actively
 engaged
        4. Guided Practice
• Students:
   - practice & apply what
  they have just learned
  through activities & class
  work.

• Teacher:
   - monitors continuously
   - gives immediate
     feedback
   - re-teaches as
     necessary
5. Independent Practice &
        Assessment
• Matches the objective.
• Allows the teacher to
  assess the individual
  students’ learning.
• Allows student to
  demonstrate whether or
  not they absorbed the
  lesson's learning goals.
• Independent Practice =
  Homework assignments or
  other independent
  assignments,
• Assessment = tests,
  quizzes, etc.
6. Closure
   The Teacher:
   • Restates the objective
   • Summarizes/reviews the
     main point
   • Retells the importance of
     the lesson
   • Relates it to future
     learning
   [Could this be done
     through more questioning
     and answering?]
+ 1 = Required Materials &
        Equipment
             • supplies
               required to help
               your students
               achieve the
               stated lesson
               objectives.
  Activity: (Guided practice) Make a
 moving model of the 6 step lesson cycle

You are going to make
  a pinwheel (it goes
  around in a cycle –
  just like the lesson
  plan cycle) with 1
  step of the lesson
  cycle on each blade.
This is particularly for
  the kinesthetic
  learners like your
  teacher.
Today you have learned the
  steps of the lesson cycle

           These steps are:
           1. Focus – motivation
              (anticipatory set)
           2. State the Objective
           3. Direct instruction
           4. Guided practice
           5. Independent practice &
              assessment
           6. Closure
           + 1 = required materials &
              equipment
You will use the steps of the lesson cycle as
    you plan lessons for your classes.
       Lesson
      Planning
• An understanding of the lesson cycle,
  together with your knowledge of
  developmental information, students’
  needs, multiple intelligences, and a
  sensitivity to learning styles, will help you
  master student instruction. Later you will
  learn more about how questioning skills
  and classroom management
  techniques, such as time on task, impact
  lesson planning.
