Lesson Planning

Hello everyone,

I am Brooke Klostermann from Wartburg College and will begin student teaching January 1. I have started to prepare and organize for this next chapter. As teachers, do you guys recommend using teacher lesson planners to plan lessons? Or what is your preferred method to lesson plan? 

 

Thank you,

Brooke Klostermann

Good question Brooke. Each school district is different in their preferred lesson plan format. Is there a teacher that you can ask to share their format? Your cooperating teacher should be able to do this. I use a lesson planner just to map out each week and determine where I need to place assessments and to give me a rough idea of pacing. I also use this so I can tie lessons to one another. If I am teaching landforms, I find a trade book to support that, check for vocabulary that may work in ELA, and science or social studies, etc.
