First things first, it might be worth checking if there is a specific lesson plan format that you need to follow. Some schools, colleges and universities have a standardised format to follow as this makes it easier for another teacher to use if you are unexpectedly away from work. While there are many different formats you can use for a lesson plan, most contain the same core elements. The title and time of the lesson are basic pieces of information and a list of required materials ensures no essentials are missed out.
Many school districts have a committee that critiques writing plans before the semester begins. This is to ensure that your materials are not only suitable for your students skills, but they are also timely, organized, and reasonable. Some common things to include in your plans include mission statements, texts, writing exercises, reading assignments, classroom discussions, and more. Some committees are content to have a basic outline of your plans, while others prefer a more detailed account. You may be required to alter your plans to meet their requirements.
