Lesson planning is the most important task that teachers do, and there are many things to consider and decisions to make when planning a lesson to teach. Before a teacher actually completes a lesson plan, there are some pre-planning items to consider and factor in to try to avoid being underprepared for a lesson.
Include all of the following pre-planning items and their purpose in the instructional planning process:
- Student contextual factors (e.g., cultural experiences, prior knowledge, and skills)
- Measuring student learning
- Learning environment and lesson location
Create a 1-page infographic that depicts the relationship between instructional planning and the pre-planning items a teacher should consider while preparing to create a lesson plan.
Include a description of each item, the importance and role each plays in effective pre-planning.
*Depending on your comfort level in creating graphical layouts, use 1 or more of the following tools to create the infographic:
- Google Slides®
- Microsoft PowerPoint®
