Planning for instruction was one of our main topics in ED 422. We used the following references to organize our thinking about how do develop different types of lesson plans for different types of lessons:

Demonstration Lessons


Demonstration, or "benchmark" lessons are typically teacher-led and focused on particular science concepts. They should use relevant phenomena and appropriate representations to help students relate new concepts to what they already know. Lessons should also include formative assessment strategies the teacher can use to gauge student understanding.
