    what is lesson plan?

      is it necessary for the teacher that the lesson plan should be well prepared?

        • Re: what is lesson plan?

          What I understand.,

          A lesson plan is of vital importance for teachers.  The lesson plan correlates with the teacher's philosophy of education, which is what he/she feels is the purpose of educating the student. It helps her/him to make realistic objectives to meet determined standards.  The lesson plan is for teachers and students a roadmap for daily use in the classroom, a working guide, a handbook of constant use. 

          A daily lesson plan is developed by the teacher to guide the instruction.  It is based on a line of thought and action. Therefore planning the instruction is more important than delivering the instruction. Planning is to align the provided/prescribed curriculum standard with developed lesson contents by the teacher to meet those standards.

          It allows teachers to manage his/her time, efforts and resources efficiently and it also helps a teacher to choose the best instructional media that suite to his/her environment and level to be taught.

          An effective lesson plan enables a teacher to keep his/her teaching practices away from monotonous and slavish methodologies.

          Since the lesson plan is like a script in movies, it should be grasping for students throughout.  

          A good lesson plan with well integrated activities engages the class of multiple intelligence as different activities will cater all types of students.

            No doubt, without planing how a teacher can achieve the goals?

              Many different formats for lesson plans exist. Some teachers prefer one lesson plan format; others prefer a different one. That's fine. They reflect different purposes and styles.

              After you become familiar with various formats and their elements, you can choose (or create) one that best fits your own teaching purposes and style.


              Below you will see several examples of different lesson plan formats (just the "skeletons"). Look them over. See if you can pick out the elements common to many of them. Also, look for elements which may be unique to a particular format. Think why these elements may be useful.


              LESSON PLAN


              Materials needed:

              Class activities: Warm-up/review Presentation Practice Application

              Contingency plan:

              --thinking skills





              LESSON PLAN

              Background information on class/students:




              Learning/Teaching activities (list steps and time required for each):

              LESSON PLAN

              Topic of this lesson:


              Materials needed:

              Business items (announcements):


              Teaching/Learning activities:

              • Practice
              • Evaluation

              What were some of the elements common to most of the lesson plans that you saw? (Try to come up with at least five.)

              Some of the common elements that we noticed were…

              • objectives
              • pre-assessment
              • materials
              • warm-up
              • presentation
              • practice
              • evaluation
              • application

              By now you may be wondering,

              "But what do all these titles mean?""What are objectives, and what makes them effective?""What is pre-assessment, and how do I do it?""How are warm-up, presentation, practice, evaluation, and application different?"

              Those are very important questions.


              Here are some definitions, descriptions, explanations, and examples that may answer them and help you understand the different elements found in lesson plans.

                A lesson plan is a vital tool  in the life of a teacher. It serves as her blueprint in achieving her goals and reaching her objectives.....Without LP activities are unplanned ... A well prepared LP  is coupled with an instructional material that will help in imparting knowledge and skills to the young learners.
