✶ How to Do List Style Lessong Planning: List Style Lesson Planning PowerPoint Presentation
✶List style lesson planning allows educators to plan their whole year, semester, quarter, or unit at one time!
✶ Simply describe the lesson as you would in a traditional grid-style or calendar-style lesson planners in the first column. Include information such as procedures, textbook pages, guest speakers, videos, and needed assessments.
✶ Books, websites, videos, art supplies, and other tools are listed in the Materials Needed box.
✶ When you are teaching, you do the NEXT THING on the list. The day each row is completed, you write in the date in the Date Completed box.
✶ The reason this style of planning works so well is you don’t have to constantly be moving what didn’t get completed and making your lesson plans look cluttered. You just keep doing the next thing.
✶ This type of planning allows for interruptions such as fire drills and assemblies because you simply do the NEXT THING on the list and you do not write in the date of completion until it is done.
✶ This type of planning allows you to linger on certain lessons or move on quickly because you already know the NEXT THING to do! In this way, you don’t have to waste class time with “fillers” because your plans are already set!
✶ Print off as many pages are needed for each subject, topic, or unit.
✶ Color code lesson plans as needed with colored paper or simply with colored pencils and inks.
✶ Bind plans together by three-hole punching and placing in a binder. Subjects can be separated by tabs and additional pages can easily be added.
✶ Plans may also be bound via comb-binding or spiral binding at a local print shop or education agency.
✶ These pages also serve as great record-keeping for tutoring students!
✶ If your administration requires submission of lesson plans on a weekly basis, simply count the next five days of lessons and submit that. No more extra thinking!
✶ Additionally, administration can see you have planned ahead and know where you are going with your lessons! It shows that you know the material, when and what you will teach, and when and how you will assess!
