Lesson plans are going to be an essential part of my practical experience as well as a vital component to assignment 3. As a result of this I have taken the time to research what makes a good lesson plan. A good lesson plan must have a realistic timeline for completion, must have a conclusion, must check for understanding, have learning objectives and have a list of specific learning activities that will take place throughout the lesson (Milkova, S., n.d.). After a lesson plan I must also remember to reflect on my teaching and continuously improve.
