Preparation for Instruction. A Module of Instruction in Teacher Education. Prepared for Project RAFT.
Handley, Herbert M., Ed.
This module, developed by the Research Applications for Teaching (RAFT) project, was written to assist students to write lesson plans that are effective and interactive. Students are given directions for the preparation of behavioral objectives and for the selection of appropriate instructional methodologies to meet the widely varying needs of preservice teachers in a class. Each component of the lesson plan is discussed and an outline for a lesson plan is given. An example lesson plan is presented. Students prepare a lesson plan in their area of specialization and teach it in simulated conditions. They also perform a series of structured classroom observations in which they observe the instructional plans and teaching methodologies of teachers in regular classrooms. Results of their observations are recorded on data sheets included in the appendices of the module. A major effort is made to assist students to plan lessons which allow for interaction among students. Instruction is given on planning lessons based on inquiry and discovery processes. (JD)
