Outstanding Lesson Plan Template

Outstanding Lesson Plan Template

This Lesson Plan template is designed with all the categories necessary for an outstanding lesson.This template can be applied to all subjects.Areas within template include;Teacher name - Subject / Group - Focus - Lesson DurationLearning Objectives - Planning with Bloom and The Big 4Different sections for your starter/main/closing activitiesTips/cues for teaching strategiesTick listsGroup ProfilesSeating Chart - with student informationand sections prompting differentiationI created and use this lesson plan template in all my lessons. I find it incredibly helpful and useful to keep on track of my lesson and learners. There are sections devoted to each point in your lesson and areas to highlight which students need support. There is also a handy 'Quick Glance' section to help you refresh your memory during your lesson. It is recommended that you give detailed information in the various sections to help ensure your lesson runs smoothly. This lesson plan is two pages, so it is recommended you print off this plan 'back to back'.

Content, Process, and Product: Modeling Differentiated Instruction

Content, Process, and Product: Modeling Differentiated Instruction

Modeling differentiated instruction is one way to demonstrate how educators can incorporate instructional strategies to address students' needs, interests, and learning styles. This article discusses how secondary teacher candidates learn to focus on content—the "what" of instruction; process—the "how" of instruction; and product—the "evidence" of instruction.

NPQSL Final Combined Task - completed 2016 - under new framework

NPQSL Final Combined Task - completed 2016 - under new framework

This assignment includes my: blood, sweat and tears! This is my NPQSL assignment and is focused on improving writing in a primary school. I really wish I'd had an NPQSL example assignment to look at while I was writing mine as it would have stopped me second guessing myself. However, I passed with flying colours and am now offering mine to you to make the process much easier. I uploaded the assignment on 8.2.16 and received feedback on 29.3.16. Feedback (as shown on first page) awarded all of the 9 competencies as passed at the required level. The written feedback was excellent and only includes strengths, no areas for development. I have deleted several appendices because they included photographic evidence of specific events/individuals. I would recommend that you consider doing this also as visuals are always a nice break from a lengthy piece of text. However, I have kept my action plan and report to the Headteacher in the appendices as I feel these are important for your reference. My resources always take me a lot of time and effort to create so I hope that they help to save you some precious time - please do review my resources. Thank you!A section from my written feedback:'Strengths were demonstrated in Delivering continuous improvement as your priorities for improvement were clearly linked to your vision for the project. You regularly reviewed progress and reflected on actions and achievements of pupils in writing. The Action plan and strategies were fully implemented and you skilfully monitored planning, teaching, learning and assessment data. Throughout the project you remained solution-focused. In terms of Modelling excellence in leadership of teaching and learning you demonstratedexcellent leadership of teaching and learning. You set up and embedded the writing initiatives and adapted the teaching and learning approaches to suit the needs of pupils. It is evident that you have high expectations, model excellence and vision and have shared ideas and practice very effectively. Staff have been provided with the clarity they need in order to feel empowered and accountable in their role. Strengths were demonstrated in Learning focus as you set up and embedded the writing initiative and applied theory and knowledge of learning to improve outcomes for pupils. It is evident that you are committed to learning and achieving excellence and led valuable inset for staff to improve their subject knowledge in grammar, planning and writing. '
