             Lesson Planning

To begin, ask yourself three basic questions:

1.Where are your students going?

2. How are they going to get there?

3. How will you know when they've arrived?

                       CSS 487
           Lesson Plan Sections

1.   Goals/Rationale
2.   Objectives
3.   Prerequisites
4.   Background Information
5.   Materials
6.   Lesson Description
7.   Lesson Procedure
8.   Evaluation
9.   References

                         CSS 487

• What is the broader rationale of the unit
• What do you expect students to know by
  the end of this unit?

                    CSS 487

After completing this lesson, students
will be able to…

                 CSS 487

• What must students already be able to do
  before this lesson?
• What concepts have to be mastered in
  advance to accomplish the lesson

                    CSS 487
       Background Information

• Technical information someone will need
 to know to conduct the lesson.
• Especially important in EE
• Should cite references at the end for
 further study.

                     CSS 487

•What materials will be needed?

•What textbooks or story books are needed?
(include full bibliographic citations)

•What needs to be prepared in advance?

                   CSS 487
           Lesson Description

•What is unique about this lesson?

•How did your students like it?

•What level of learning is covered by this lesson
plan? (Think of Bloom's Taxonomy: knowledge,
comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, or

            Anticipatory Set

Describes how you will make the transition
 into the lesson

How is it related to past material, future
 materials, student knowledge, and

                     CSS 487

• Describe how you will introduce the
  lesson to the students and how you will
  stimulate their interest and excitement for
  the topic and activities.
• A "spring board" activity, demonstration,
  song, etc. can often be effective in
  capturing the students interest.
• What will be expected of students?

                     CSS 487
                Main Activity

• A step-by-step procedure
• Number each of the steps
• Avoid generalities – e.g." Discuss water
• How would you describe the flow of the lesson
  to another teacher who will replicate it?
• What does the teacher do to facilitate learning
  and manage the various activities?

                       CSS 487

• Describe how you will conclude the lesson
  (review of content, bridges, informal assessment
  of learning, student feedback, etc.).
• Effective activities include those that get the
  students to summarize what they have learned
  (by, for example, presenting the results of a
  science project)
• Again, describe what both the teacher and the
  students will do.

                       CSS 487
          Follow-up Lessons

• What activities might you suggest for
  enrichment and remediation?
• What lessons might follow as a result of
  this lesson?

                    CSS 487
• Plan for how you will assess student learning.
• The focus is not on grading the students but on
  determining if the objectives have been achieved.
• Try to make it an "authentic" and integrated part of the
• The assessment may include questions within the body
  of the lesson plan…
• or specific formal and informal evaluation procedures
  such as observations, skill demonstrations, tests, reports
  of projects, portfolios, media displays, published works,
• Your assessment strategies must match up with

                            CSS 487

• Cite all references used completely
• Will help others do background reading
