K-12 learning system has been accepted by many top schools and college. This system of education puts more emphasis on ideas and accomplishment. In simple words we can say that learning is a way of transferring knowledge.
K-12 classrooms are similar to any other usual class where the learners attend the classroom and learn what is taught. This education system encourages learners to put forth their ideas and thoughts; hence the teacher should be able to move the discussion into a positive sphere.
Plan for Successful Learning
The teacher should also plan the lessons on daily basis for successful learning. A teacher designs a lesson plan so that he/she will be able to know the interests and requirements of students and design the teaching strategy accordingly.
While designing a lesson plan teachers should keep in mind that it is appropriate to the needs of each child and is providing individuality with respect to language, temperament, cultural background and learning style. Even the teachers should encourage the parents to participate in the improvement of the daily lesson plans.
Components of Good Plan
Lesson plans should be broad and thematic as it allows a teacher to create various research, writing, speaking, and reading assignments. A lesson plan must associate with the textbook the class uses and should contain age appropriate activities that address the goals of each student in the classroom.
A good lesson plan does not guarantee that a student will learn what is being taught to him/her but yet it does help in the process of learning. A successful lesson plan is prepared by the teacher to communicate their training activities about specific subjects efficiently.
Nearly all the lesson plans prepared by teachers have student learning objectives, mandatory materials, coaching measures and some written report of how the students will be assessed. Teachers should learn the proper skills to write a good lesson plan to serve themselves well as a teacher.
Basically a lesson plan is considered a thinking process and is completed in four parts.
- We need to determine the course that a child will learn and what they will be capable of doing after finishing the lesson.
- Teachers should know what the students already know to avoid the repetition of the lectures and to start with a new lesson.
- There should be a specific and prescribed way to help the students grasp the lesson properly.
- Teachers should also outline some proper rules for the evaluation process.
