Lesson plans are an essential to teaching, helping the teacher provide organized, structured, and effective lessons to the students. Every teacher will have differences in their style and methods, but consistency is paramount, especially for a new teacher. A lesson plan is an important tool, and serves as an aid to planning, a working document, and a record. As an aid to planning, lesson plans help the teacher delineate the material to be covered in a lesson, expectations for what students will learn, and a path to make that possible. Lesson plans also help the teacher think through the time each planned activity will take, and therefore allows for a more organized lesson. It also helps the teacher ensure activities fit together well within the lesson and that the skills being used and taught are appropriately balanced. Finally, it also serves as a checklist for supplemental materials, props, and other equipment to facilitate the teacher’s being prepared for class. As a working document, a lesson plan must maintain a balance of enough detail and pre-planning to eliminate wandering and help the teacher stay on track with the lesson while also retaining enough space and flexibility to allow the teacher to address questions and modify activity time to accommodate needs as they arise. To that end, the lesson plan should be written simply enough for the teacher to reference it while teaching class. The lesson plan also gives the teacher a place to think through and anticipate potential problems, and in so doing help be prepared for questions. Finally, as a record, a lesson plan is a very useful tool for tracking, documentation, and reflection. Keeping lessons plans not only allow the teacher to track what material has been covered, but even the needed extra materials and props for particular lessons. This is helpful as time goes on to have a record of what has been covered, and can aid in planning lessons for similar classes. This documentation will also simplify the process for another teacher stepping in to cover a particular class if a need arises, because not only will he have a record of what has been covered but also provides a guide for the lessons being covered. One last benefit of lessons plans as records, it enables the teacher to reflect upon his own teaching: comparing how the planned material and activity times lined up with what was actually able to be covered in the allotted time, efficacy of current methods n reacting learning objectives, and even a cogent method for evaluating the improvement and areas needing improvement with teacher. In conclusion, a lesson plan is a highly useful tool for teachers to plan, organize, and record lessons; however, should always be viewed as a tool for a teacher. More experienced teacher’s lesson plans may be simple notes written down whereas a new teacher may need a more extensive plan to produce an effective class. Consistency is important, and a lesson plan will fill the functions described, but the precise form will always be tailored to the particular teacher and will likely evolved over time, changing and improving to help the teacher produce an engaging and useful class.
