Hello. This week, we’ll be focusing on course and lesson planning. Why do you plan or not plan? What do you include in lesson plans? You’ll be looking at lesson stages within a plan and considering why teachers do certain things at different points in a lesson. People approach their lesson planning in a variety of ways. And we’ll be asking you to take part in a poll, the results of which will be shared at the end of this week. Also this week, you’ll be observing part of a lesson, and then a condensed version of a full lesson to compare with a lesson plan. Now, to start off this week’s discussions, we’d like to know how you feel about lesson planning.
