Classroom Management: Lesson Planning Made Easy

Lesson planning is the key to the castle, in terms of education: Every component of the educational process is dependent upon successful and well-executed lesson plans. It’s imperative, therefore, that educators be well-acclimated to the classroom management techniques required to create effective lessons.
A lot goes into lesson plans: Addressing students’ learning objectives, incorporating engaging activities, and checking for student understanding. Today on, frequent contributing writer Janelle Cox, who is a seasoned elementary school educator based on the East Coast, takes a look at some fresh ways to create your lesson plans, including:
  • Borrow Lessons
  • Buy Lessons
  • Download an App
  • And More!

Janelle sums up her article in this manner: “Whether you build, borrow, buy, or create your own lessons, the ultimate goal is to ensure that students are learning from the lessons. Whatever approach you choose is up to you. The lesson plan doesn’t have to be an exhaustive document of every single detail you plan to do with the students. Nor does it have to explain in detail what or how the students will respond. It just needs to provide you with a general outline of your goals and objectives.”
