Lesson planning tool

In this step you will use a lesson plan template we have developed (available for download at the bottom of the page).

The template brings together many of the ideas we’ve been discussing in the course into a single document. Not all of the items will be relevant to every context or particular lesson, of course, so they are intended as a guide to the kinds of issues you might consider in your lesson planning. We hope that it will assist you as you start out, but would encourage you to adapt it to suit your own practice as needed.

You might also like to look at an example of a lesson plan (also posted below) that we put together using the template to show you how this tool might be used. This isn’t intended to show a definitive way of using the template, but rather is an example based on our own practice and perspectives. As you review it, you might consider how you would do this similarly or differently yourself, as this is what you will do in the next step.
