I like it very much. If you have lesson plans even weekly and monthly it easy to do your lesson more easy.
All this steps are very important but you also need to do a short warm up at the beginning of your class to remove the effective filter, to focus students attention and to introduce new vocabulary.
Lesson Plan Rubric Directions: Use this rubric to determine if you have completed all the elements of the lesson plan. As you evaluate your peers’ or your own lesson plan, also look carefully at the rubric below. The description in each box should help you determine how well the lesson plan meets the criteria. If you can’t decide between two scores in a category, choose the higher one. Be sure to read all of the cells describing each element before you begin to rate a lesson plan. Category Weak (1) Fair (2) Good (3) Excellent (4) Students and setting There is very little information about the students and the setting. One or two elements are missing, so it’s difficult to understand who the students are and/or what their setting is. Most elements are included. It’s possible to have an idea of who the students are, but it is not easy to visualize the class. All elements are fully described: Students’ age, grade level, previous English experience; type of institution, number of students in the class, class meetings per week, length of each class meeting. It’s clear who the students are, and we can visualize their class. Lesson background There is almost no information about the background. It’s unclear how this lesson fits in with what happened before or with what will come after this lesson. There is some information about the background, but it’s hard to visualize what happened before and/or after this lesson. There is enough information about the background to visualize what happened either before or after the lesson, but not both. The background is not completely or clearly described. The background of this lesson is clearly described. We can visualize what happened in the class before (if this is not the first lesson) and after the lesson (if this is not the final lesson). Learning objectives/ expected results The learning objectives/ expected results are unclear. The level on Bloom’s taxonomy is not appropriate. We don’t know what the students are supposed to be learning. The learning objectives and results may not be clear or may not be measurable. Level(s) on Bloom’s taxonomy are included but may not be completely appropriate. We have some idea of what the students are supposed to be learning, but not much. The learning objectives and results are clear enough to have an idea of what students are supposed to be learning. The level(s) on Bloom’s Taxonomy are adequate. It’s somewhat easy to visualize exactly what students are supposed to understand or demonstrate that they know. The learning objectives/ expected results are clear. The level(s) on Bloom’s taxonomy are given and are appropriate. We can easily visualize what the students are supposed to understand or demonstrate that they know.
for feed back i think roll plays can play an important roll in assessing students also you can split the class into teams and have each team review the other. Feedback is important but it can be good for students to leaner from there own mistakes.
every day English roll plays based on real world situations are the best.
what does it take to turn a unit from red to green?i read each unit ask question, reply to others but nothing?
Having a lesson plan show the instructor or teacher takes his/her time to bring well planned materials for learners to reach their goals.
ESL Lesson Plan
There are many ways of teaching an ESL class. However, lessons will not be effective unless instructors follow a logical plan.
Click on the numbers below to see the steps involved in creating an ESL lesson plan.
ESL instructors should provide students with a list of learning objectives at the beginning of each lesson. These objectives outline the material the instructor hopes to cover by the end of the lesson.
Defining learning objectives helps students and instructors alike to focus their efforts at the beginning of each class.
Instructors should help learners to review all that they have previously learned in the ESL course.
This can be done through exercises that encourage learners to use previously taught skills and vocabulary.
At this point the instructor should explain the overall goal of the lesson and the long-term benefit the lesson will have for students.
This is the main part of the lesson.
The instructor presents the new material to the students and provides examples that illustrate that material.
ESL teachers must give students a chance to put their new knowledge into practice. This should be done via activities.
These activities will also allow the instructor to ensure that students understand the new material correctly.
They will also allow the student to begin integrating the new knowledge into their skill set.
In this stage, instructors should give students a short quiz in order to provide them with feedback.
This quiz allows students to acknowledge their progress as well as highlighting areas for improvement.
Finally, instructors should give learners the opportunity to apply what they learned in the lesson.
This can take the form of splitting students into pairs and having them engage in a short dialogue.
Such dialogues should resemble real life situations so students can feel confident speaking in a real world setting.
