Effective Lesson Planning

Educators may use many different formats for creating lesson plans. Some formats work better than others for particular kinds of lessons. No matter what style or format a teacher uses, it is important for he/she to thoroughly plan a lesson prior to delivering it in the classroom. Simply stating the pages to be gone over in a text book is NOT a lesson plan as a book is only one of many tools teachers have at their disposal. This module on Lesson Planning will examine different formats of lesson plans that can be used to help teachers plan, organize and deliver quality lessons through a structured approach to classroom teaching, alignment of curriculum, instruction and assessment.
