It's an ill plan that cannot be changed. - Latin Proverb
How to Write a Good Lesson Plan There are many ways of writing a lesson plan but there is no universally recognized way of doing it. The problem usually is that most templates prepared and recommended by some administrators of educational institutions are complicated and require a lot of time to be filled in. In fact they are not very suitable for a practical and busy ESL teacher who teaches 20 to 24 hours per week or more. A lesson plan should serve the teacher but not the bureaucrats who come to watch how the teacher teaches and require from the teacher a formal written document called ‘a lesson plan’. A plan is a good idea if it helps the teacher to do the teaching but not the other way round. However, it often happens that ESL lessons without any ‘lesson plans’ are much more successful than those with carefully written plans.
In most cases a well prepared lesson plan can help the teacher to increase quality of teaching. It must be concise and clearly written. We would suggest the following format. You can copy-and-paste it and make any changes you like according to your personal needs.
