Developing A Science Lesson

  1. 1. Developing a Science Lesson
  2. 2. A. The Need for Planning Why should you plan early enough?
  3. 3.  Assurance of an effective procedure and a complete coverage of the subject that you aim to teach. The activities that you need to perform together with the corresponding time allotment will enable you to progress smoothly.  A good and reliable plan can definitely enhance your self- confidence. Together with a relaxed and “authoritative poise” which will make it easy for you to control the class.
  4. 4.  Your plan can be submitted to your department head or head teacher for comments and suggestions, thus adding to your learning experience.  Experience gained from your daily lesson planning task can serve as well-earned qualification for future classroom activities.
  5. 5.  A systematically conceived lesson plan speaks of an orderly work and study habits of teachers worthy of commendation.  The choice of appropriate instructional materials can be decided and included in the plan.
  6. 6. B. Factors to Consider In order to be able to prepare a complete lesson plan, teachers should be ready with the following:
  7. 7.  Adequate knowledge about the subject matter to be taught- The number of concepts and subtopics to be covered and the time allowed shall have been determined ahead of time.  Appropriate teaching methodology to be followed- This shall be considered depending on the background knowledge, level of understanding of the students and the nature of the concepts to be taught.
  8. 8.  Instructional materials and supplies – They must be sufficient.  Equipment and laboratory tools to be used- They must be ready to be operated during the class hours.  Books references and other instructional devices must be handy at the time of need.
  9. 9. C. Basic Steps and Parts of a Lesson Plan Steps in Preparing A Lesson Plan 1. Writing the objectives 2. Determining the teaching strategies to be followed. 3. Identifying and incorporating appropriate instructional aids to be used 4. Designing the assignments
  10. 10. Parts of a Lesson Plan: 1. Objectives 2. Subject matter 3. Materials Needed 4. Background knowledge 5. Lesson proper a. Preliminary activities b. Motivation c. Planned activities including questions for discussions and direction d. Concluding statement 6. Assessment 7. Assignment
  11. 11. D. Planning the Lesson
