EFFECTIVE LESSON PLANNING, DELIVERY TECHNIQUES

AND CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT SUGGESTIONS

 

 

Good lesson planning is essential to the process of teaching and learning.  A teacher who is prepared is well on his/her way to a successful instructional experience.  The development of interesting lessons takes a great deal of time and effort.  As a new teacher you must be committed to spending the necessary time in this endeavor.

 

It is also important to realize that the best planned lesson is worthless if interesting delivery procedures, along with good classroom management techniques, are not in evidence.  There is a large body of research available pertaining to lesson development and delivery and the significance of classroom management.  They are skills that must be researched, structured to your individual style, implemented in a teacher/learning situation, and constantly evaluated and revamped when necessary.  Consistency is of the utmost importance in the implementation of a classroom management plan.

 

All teachers should understand that they are not an island unto themselves.  The educational philosophy of the district and the uniqueness of their schools should be the guiding force behind what takes place in the classroom.  The school’s code of discipline, which should be fair, responsible and meaningful, must be reflected in every teacher’s classroom management efforts.
