Lesson Planning for Teachers
Lesson planning is a difficult but important part of any teacher’s job. Without a solid plan in place, it can be hard to capture and maintain the focus of your class. It is also harder to ensure that you have allocated enough time to the material that you want to deliver. While lesson planning is complex, it is a skill that can be learned just like any other.
This course gives you an overview of lesson planning, letting you know how to properly arrange the material that you want to deliver in a way that appeals to as many students as possible.
We divide this information across two modules. The first module focuses on what you need to know before you sit down to draft your lesson plan, including a discussion of different learning styles.
The second module talks about how to execute your lesson plan and includes a discussion on classroom technology.
