Product Description
This file is a template for creating formal lesson plans. This template will help you to ensure informational completeness of your lesson plan while also maintaining a uniform, attractive, easy-to-read appearance. Save yourself time writing lesson plans and escape the drudgery of formatting each document anew.

All formatting - font styles, headings, line spacing, list numbering, and automatic page numbering - has been set for you. As well, almost all of the lesson plan headings are contained within tables: no matter how much content you type into the document, the formatting will remain uniform.

This template contains the following fields:



Grade level
Learning context

Models/teaching strategies
Class time required
Task-by-task learning activities
Teacher preparation

Technology Used
Materials Used

Any user can type over the existing headings to change field titles. MS Word users comfortable with editing tables can easily add or delete fields.

To use the template, save this document as an MS Word template and apply it to future documents, or save it as a document and simply choose "save as" whenever you create a new lesson plan. The file is compatible with editions of Word from 2008 and later. You may also be able to import it into other word processing programs, such as Pages, but I cannot warrant that the formatting will be consistent if used in a program other than Word.

If you wish to purchase this template in another file format, such as .dot (for MS Word 2004-2007) or PDF, please send me a message through Teachers Pay Teachers. I will do my best to accommodate special requests. Please also let me know if you encounter any glitches when using this template. Though I do my utmost to test all formatting before offering documents for sale, small errors can sometimes occur when using different versions of Word or operating systems from the ones used in file creation.

I am providing this template for unlimited personal use. If you find it helpful and wish to share it with colleagues, please purchase multiple licenses or direct users to purchase a copy from my Teachers Pay Teachers store. You may not use this template for commercial purposes, such as creating lesson plans for sale.
