The structure of a lesson is so important. Curtin College encourages the use of lesson planning using templates that consider what the student is doing throughout the lesson, not just what content the teacher is delivering. Having a clear structure for a lesson is also incredibly helpful when teachers need to leave work for a substitute, reflect on their practices or adapt new ideas as a team.
In this recording, Katharina McMeekin and Sarah Kent explore how we can begin to sequence our learning design through the use of lesson plans. Katharina shares a lesson planning approach that encourages focus on a variety of student-led activities and Sarah shares the benefits of using lesson plans from a team perspective.
