The Art of Crafting Effective Lesson Plans

Trish Detrick June 3, 2011

Presented at:
SCL Conference 2011


Whether formal or informal, detailed or simplistic, every effective teacher creates a plan for the lesson to be taught. Different schools have different standards for lesson plans, but there are universal components that should be contemplated for every lesson. This workshop will display the key components in effective lesson planning and establishing curricular memory at your school.
