    What Is a Lesson Plan?

    A lesson plan is a guide that details a teacher’s objectives for what the students will accomplish in the lesson planned. It includes setting goals, developing activities and figuring out the resources needed to carry out the lesson. Developing lesson plans require a lot of time, dedication and understanding of the students and their needs.

    How to Create a Lesson Plan?

    • Before writing your lesson plan, get to know your students. Identify their learning styles and incorporate them throughout the lesson.
    • Create a student profile listing their needs, goals, challenges, etc. You can use that information to adjust your lesson plan as necessary.
    • Make a lesson plan template that meets your requirements and that you can quickly edit. You can choose one from a range of Creately lesson plan templates.
    • Define learning outcomes and objectives of the lesson on the template. This will help you decide what you want your students to take away from the lesson.
    • Based on what the students already know, outline the main topics you wish to discuss during the lesson with your students.
    • Plan your lesson in sections that you can speed up or slow down according to the changes that may happen during the class.
    • Create a timeline to show how each section would span over the period of the lesson. You can give a small description of each section.
    • Embed the lesson plan created on your school’s internal website or share them with others so they can easily access it.
