This form works with all ages, subjects, and content.
Use this graphically organized lesson planning form for each of your classes each day. This is a great support for the preservice and newbie teacher or for a teacher teaching a new subject/lesson for the first time.
Education professors might find these forms useful for instructing lesson plan writing.
This form could be filled out while observing a preservice teacher or colleague for professional development purposes. If using it for this purpose, I would recommend printing this form on duplicate or triplicate paper so copies can be retained and shared.
This is a great document to place into a professional portfolio.
This form allows for lesson plans to be easily shared among staff and colleagues.
If a student or group of students will be leading a lesson or a portion of a lesson, have them use this form in their planning. Then, the supervising teacher/professor could use the same form to monitor and compare the planning with the actual lesson.
Print off enough of these for each of your class’s meeting sessions. Collate them into a spiral bound or comb bound book for each class/subject. This could also be done using three-ringed binders and tabs to separate each class.
By using these forms for daily use, you can compare from year to year the progress of your classes. Additionally, once you complete a year with these sheets, it helps to keep consecutive year’s planning to a minimum.
Homeschool families can use this form as a recordkeeping mechanism as required by law or for personal reasons.
In many cases those who teach at Sunday schools, community projects, or camps are unfamiliar with researched teaching practices. Using this form can give them confidence and structure needed in their teaching and make sure all necessary information is taught.
