Using Published Teaching Techniques To Develop Lesson Plans.
Weiler, Robert M.
This paper provides guidelines on how to develop complete lesson plans using information from selected published articles and a standard lesson plan outline. The technique is designed as a culminating project for a methods and materials health education course or a teacher inservice activity. Students select a journal article that describes an innovative process-specific or content-specific teaching strategy. They then develop a complete lesson plan using an outline adapted from K. Middleton's "Anatomy of a Lesson." Enough information is provided to enable a substitute teacher to implement the lesson with minimal preparation. Students can demonstrate the selected lesson for evaluation and provide copies of their strategy to classmates. Students report that they enjoy reviewing strategies and being exposed to the creative ideas of other health educators, and they feel that they acquire additional insights about planning, organizing, and directing lessons. Assignment guidelines and a copy of the lesson plan outline are appended. (JDD)
