Developing a lesson plan can be one of the most time-consuming aspects for teachers, particularly ones who are new to the career. There are a number of ways that you can find out what works for you and what doesn’t.
One of the most important areas to look into is the generic lesson plans that are available to every teacher. While there are some limitations to these (they don’t necessarily conform to everybody’s teaching style and, more accurately, they ask teachers to conform to them), they can be a great starting point to develop upon.
Another option is to approach other teachers. There are a plethora of teacher support groups active online, including some that help you develop your abilities as a teacher. As a new teacher, you should also have a senior teacher working over you with a lot of expertise that you can harness for your own classroom.
When you’re coming up with a lesson plan, one of the most important aspects is to give you and your students as much leeway as possible. Not everybody teaches the same and not everybody learns the same, and seeking to conform to force conformity on somebody else can be misguided.
