In some cases, grade plans must be scrutinized by a committee before the material is presented to students. This makes sure that the material and scheduling included is appropriate for the students as well as their overall grade level and abilities. Once the grade plans have been approved, the teacher is free to use them to the best of his or her ability.
When it comes to constructing your plan, think about what the goal of each lesson is. Write this down, detailing any skills you intend to teach and include a brief description of the activity you have planned. Depending on how quickly your class progresses you may find it easiest to create your lesson plans on a weekly basis, always with the overall goal in mind. You will have a certain amount of time to cover a set amount of material so constructing lesson plans can help to ensure everything is running smoothly and on time.
