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.
A list of objectives can help you to gauge whether or not your students have achieved everything they should have once the lesson is over. Depending on the subject matter, objectives might be practical, for example, what can the student do at lesson completion. The objectives could also be knowledge based, for example, what does the student know after the lesson is complete.
