Lesson stages

watch video demonstrating planning lesson stages

The lesson plan templates in step 1.7 were broken down into stages. Watch the video of one stage in a primary teacher’s reading lesson, which comes just before the learners read the story. As you watch, think about the questions below:

  • Why did the teacher do these activities before the learners read the story?
  • What stages do you think came later in the lesson?
  • What activities do you give your learners before or after a reading activity?

A note on classroom video
