Page 35 Best Practices & Ideas What is your club doing? What could your club do?
Page 36 Lesson Plan Outline INTRODUCTION: 1.GAIN THE ATTENTION OF YOUR AUDIENCE By using anything that captures the attention & is related to the material to be taught, we are priming the pump, so to speak. It can be informative, funny, interesting, etc, but never insulting, demeaning, etc. (Internal learning process: Alertness). Example: What do all of you have in common besides being Zontians? Answer: You belong to the D11 Board & are members of that team. 2.STATE WHAT YOU WILL BE TALKING ABOUT (OBJECTIVES) When a Zontian is aware of what is coming, they are more likely to learn what is expected & retain this information/skill in memory. Objectives should be in everyday language. (Internal learning process: Expectancy) Example: Today we are going to look at the steps in developing a successful team, i.e.one that can accomplish its goals. PRESENTATION RELEVANT TO TOPIC: 3.GIVE AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT THEY ALREADY KNOW We need to be able to relate the current topic to past information. Example: You all have known of some effective teams. (Can ask for examples.) 4.PRESENT YOUR INFORMATION This is the heart of your presentation. Here the content of the session is discussed. Example: Present, explain, & discuss the 4 steps in forming an effective team. Use flip charts, PowerPoint, handouts, etc. 5.GUIDE THE LEARNING Use any technique to help understanding & retention. (Internal learning process: Semantic encoding) Example: Say the 4 steps: Form, storm, norm, & perform. Similar names makes them more likely to be remembered. PRACTICE: (if possible) 6.ARRANGE FOR PRACTICE Develop ways for Zontian to practice using the new knowledge & skills. This increases the likelihood of success in learning. (Internal learning process: Retrieval & responding) Example: The board had opportunities to get to know each other, to brainstorm, to actually perform. NOTE: You will usually not have the ability to do this step in a Zonta club presentation. So giving a handout that the club members can use in the future would be helpful, as it will remind them of the important points in your information. 7.PROVIDE FEEDBACK Practice makes perfect only if useful feedback is given so a person knows quickly what she is doing correctly & how she can improve the performance. (Internal learning process: Reinforcement) Example: The board got an A+ on team development! NOTE: this is not always possible in a presentation, but if practice can be arranged, so can feedback. TESTING: 8.ASSESS PERFORMANCE This is formal testing. In an academic environment or in on-the-job training, this is an important step. In other training programs, the practice step suffices for actual use of the new information. (Internal learning process: Cueing retrieval) Example: A little quiz could be used if practice is not possible; it should be simple & light. Scenarios that require application of your presentation are often fun to discuss. SUMMARY: 9.ENHANCE RETENTION & LEARNING TRANSFER People need to apply their new learning in future situations. Make a statement on how the skills & knowledge they have learned might be useful in the future or in other situations. (Internal learning process: Generalizing) Example: You can use the group formation steps when talking to a club about how well it functions.
