5 Bits of Advice About: Planning

  1. Ignore people who tell you to write a script for a lesson and learn it by heart. Teaching doesn’t work like that.
  2. No lesson, however well planned, will survive unscathed from a) a wasp in the room and b) a flake of snow outside.
  3. Most of us overestimate what we will get through in one lesson when we start out teaching.Timing comes with practice.
  4. Don’t feel afraid to say “No questions for the moment” or “I’ll take questions later” There is a time for questions, but there is also a time for concentrating.
  5. Run a mile from any school which insists all teachers in all subjects follow a standard template for every lesson. Good teaching involves flexibility.
