Lesson PLanning and Student Learning
Planning lessons ahead of time is very beneficial to student learning. In being prepared, the instructor is able to use the majority of the time allotted to a lesson for instruction. A good lesson plan should take various factors into consideration, such as the student who finishes early. A well planned lesson will include instructions for the early finisher. Unfortunately a student who is left without anything to do will resort to chit chatting, resulting in the distraction of other students. The lesson planning is also beneficial because it aids in the portrayal of the instructor as a well organized and efficient individual, students are receptive to this.
