Thinking About Lesson Planning

Who Am I Planning For?

What Am I Supposed To Do?


The correct question l.jpg

The Correct Question…

  • DON’T ASK: “What am I going to cover tomorrow?”

  • DO ASK: “What are my students going to learn, achieve, and accomplish tomorrow?”

    The role of the teacher is not to cover. The role of the teacher is to UNCOVER.
