7.0 LESSON PLAN October 27, 2009

Filed under: 7.0 LESSON PLAN — poemsworld1 @ 12:45 pm

A lesson plan is a teacher’s detailed description of the course of instruction for an individual lesson. A well developed lesson plan reflects interests and needs of students. It incorporates best practices for the educational field. The lesson plan correlates with the teacher’s philosophy of education, which is what the teacher feels is the purpose of educating the students.

                     Secondary English program lesson plans, for example, usually center around four topics. They are literary theme, elements of language and composition, literary history, and literary genre. A broad, thematic lesson plan is preferable, because it allows a teacher to create various research, writing, speaking, and reading assignments. It helps an instructor teach different literature genres and incorporate videotapes, films, and television programs. Also, it facilitates teaching literature and English together. School requirements and a teacher’s personal tastes, in that order; determine the exact requirements for a lesson plan.

Below is a sample of lesson plan for teachers in order to help you to plan your lessons systematically.
