Preparing lessons (1)
According to Geertsen & van Kralingen (2011)

- Know your students (level, skills, behaviour, etc.)
- Base learning aims on your knowledge of the students

Slide 7 - Slide

Why is it important to know your students before setting aims for the lessons?

Slide 8 - Open question

Preparing lessons (2)
According to Burden & Byrd (2010), Lesson plans are necessary because they:

- force new teachers to focus on student and teacher activities
- enable teachers to link lessons
- prevent aimless teaching

Slide 9 - Slide

Share your thoughts on the claims by Burden & Byrd

Slide 10 - Open question

Lesson plan formats
Geertsen & van Kralingen (2011) present three:

1. Scenario based lesson plan: draw imagined scenes
2. VUT lesson plan (Den Boogert & Droste, 1996): Vooruitkijken, 
     Uitvoeren, Terugblikken/ plan, do, reflect. Three phases: 
     beginning, middle & end of the lesson. Global idea. Freedom is key. 
3. Didactic Analytic (DA) model (Van Gelder & Oudkerk Pool, 1979; De Corte, Geerligs, Lagerweij, Peters & Vandenberghe, 1981): Focus on student activities. Integration of content, educational tools and didactic activities

Slide 11 - Slide

Discuss advantages and disadvantages of the three forms and decide which one you want to try out. Upload it with arguments per group. Challenge: Support your choice with evidence from ch 2 (Geerts & van Kralingen, 2011)

Slide 12 - Open question

Time for an energizer
Write a compliment on the sticky notes of two students. The compliment can be about their personality, skills, appearance, etc. Be positive in detail.

Slide 13 - Slide

Why learning aims?
  • Students are likely to get better results (Marzano, 2013)
  • Students know what the purpose of the lesson is, so what        they are trying to achieve (Van Gelder & Oudkerk Pool, 1979) --> More likely to follow teacher's instructions
      --> Makes classroom management easier

Slide 14 - Slide

Learning aims and Success Criteria (SC)
Aim = WALT (What Are we Learning Today)
SC = WILF (What am I Looking For)
Chroinin & Cosgrave (2013)

  • Aims and SC must be SMART
  • SC always show proof of student learning
  • SC are NOT assignment instructions
  • SC often include the verbs: can list/define/describe/explain/etc.
