Description

Lesson planning is an essential component of every teacher’s practice. It is part of a three-tiered, integrated pedagogy: planning, teaching and evaluation. Drawing on the work of skilful teachers and the latest research, this book provides a rationale for lesson planning as an integral part of a teacher’s work. It introduces the key concepts and skills of lesson planning and provides a practical framework for their development.

The book helps the reader to make an informed choice about the approaches they use to plan lessons, taking into account their subject area and the requirements of individual learners. Covering all aspects of short, medium and long-term planning, chapters include:

    • Writing Appropriate Learning Objectives and Outcomes
    • Designing and Structuring Engaging Teaching Activities
    • Resourcing the Lesson
    • Assessing Students’ Learning
    • Strategies for Personalised Learning
    • Evaluating Your Lesson

The book also includes practical and reflective activities to help the reader apply the ideas discussed to their own work and key questions to encourage the development of their skilful pedagogy. This highly practical book is essential reading for trainee and practising teachers.
