I have been thinking about what the perfect lesson looks like.
Here it is.
Introduction 2% – This is where you explain to the class what you are actually going to teach them today. The Learning objective.
Explanation 2% – Teacher explains why this lesson is important. How will it help the students in the future?
Essential Skills 2% – Although you’re teaching fractions, Inform the children that you are also observing skills such as communication, collaboration, empathy, listening skills etc
Explicit Teaching 15% – Model the strategy you’d like them to learn and inform them of the facts that will help them. Inspire them to want to know more.
Questioning 5% – Ask them children what they would like to know about the subject and write these questions down together.
Independent research/Investigation 30% – Allow the children to investigate the questions they generated previously using a variety of research options.
Representation 30% – Allow the children to represent their research in any form they like, whilst working with whom they wish in groups of any size.
Leadership 10% – Ask the children to use their work to teach others in the class.
Feedback 4% – Teacher informs the children of the observations made during the lesson.
