Every teacher is responsible for planning on a weekly and daily basis. Lesson plans are to be developed within the context of the applicable courses of study and learning units and should be designed for individual student programs being cognizant of student strengths and weaknesses.
A. Each lesson plan should contain, in addition to whatever else a teacher may wish to include, the following elements:
- purpose of the lesson
- expected student behavior when purpose has been achieved
- needed resources
- how students will be organized throughout the lesson
- how students will be oriented to the lesson
- how the lesson will begin
- how lesson will conclude
B. Lesson plans for individualized programs should reflect a general overview and purpose of the instructional program based on the Course of Study. Individual student records may serve as an integral part of the lesson plan.
C. Lesson plans as well as adequate directions are to be provided for substitutes so they can continue the ongoing program as closely as possible.
