Lesson Plans 101
Lesson Components In the following slides, you will find definitions for the most essential lesson components that are found in a well written lesson plan. Keep in mind that these will not be included in all lesson plans and that there are others that are not listed that could be included. Also, many districts require that the TEKS objectives be included in the lesson plan.
Anticipatory Set (Hook) A short activity that grabs the students attention before the actual lesson begins. Used as students enter the room, or as a transition activity.
Objective What should the students be able to do by the end of the lesson and why they need to know it. This should be something students can demonstrate and you can see. – (TEKS objectives are often required in schools)
Input Vocabulary, skills, and concepts that the teacher will teach the students.
Explanation How will you get the information across to the students in a variety of ways that reaches different learning styles? This can take place in multiple steps throughout the lesson.
Modeling The teacher shows students what the final product looks like. In other words, teachers walks through a problem without student participation, allowing them to see how it is done.
Guided Practice What will you have the students do to practice the concepts presented during explanation and how will they receive immediate feedback regarding their practice and progress?
Check for Understanding (formative assessment) Check to make sure every student has a clear understanding of the academic expectation and can successfully complete the task. This is an ongoing formative assessment that takes place throughout entire lesson that allows teacher to adjust lesson to ensure mastery.
Feedback Teacher provides specific feedback on students progress towards meeting the day’s objective.
Independent Practice Teacher releases students to practice skills on their own.
Closure A review or wrap-up of the lesson
Assessment Format used to assess student knowledge of objectives. Assessment must match the way material was taught during explanation and guided practice. Remember there are 3 types of assessment: Diagnostic – Done at beginning of lesson Formative – Done throughout entire lesson Summative – Upon completion of lesson
Re-Teach When feedback during guided practice, checking for understanding and independent practice indicate lack of success for any student, the teacher must monitor and adjust before moving on.
