Establish the goals for the lesson. it’s important to understand who your students are so that you can set objectives appropriate to their skill level.
2. Set (hook)
Build interest in the lesson through a statement or demonstration showing why the material is so important.
3. Standards / Expectations
Set clear expectations for what students should be able to accomplish by the end of the lesson. Tell students what they’re going to learn.
4. Teaching (input, modeling/demo, direction giving, checking for understanding)
Give clear explanation of the material students should know. Demonstrations, explanations, and directing students’ attention are all great ways of getting the material across. it’s also best to continually check for engagement and understanding through asking questions, checking for boredom (glazed eyes), watching for over-saturation (brains exploding, frustration), etc.
5. Guided practice
Set students clear objectives, give them questions to discuss and answer, give them quick and direct feedback and give them problems to solve.
Wrap up the lesson by reminding students (ideally, asking them to remember) everything they just learned to stick it in their minds.
7. Independent practice
Feel free to give your students homework to practice in their own time to solidify the concepts they’ve learned in class.
You will hopefully be able to recognize some of these steps in the classes you’ve taken or taught. For more information, Google Madeline Hunter, the “ITIP” model, or visit http://www.hope.edu/academic/education/wessman/2block/unit4/hunter2.htm
