What is your advice about? Planning
1: At the end of the lesson what do you want your students to take away? Start at the end with a “Golden Nugget”.
2: Try to find something that hooks the students in at the beginning of the lesson. Make it meaningful.
3: Planning in sequences – it helps to map out where you are going.
4: Cut the fat – try to consider whether an activity is necessary in helping you reach your objective.
5: No lesson is perfect (few are, ever). Teach it, Reflect on it and Try it again.
