Assignment 1: ESSAY
“It is recognised that effective teaching involves planning. When we plan a lesson as teachers we decide what to teach and how to teach it”.
Critically discuss how these decisions are determined by the following factors:
1. The Syllabus http://www.boardofstudies.nsw.edu.au/
2. Diverse student learning needs (including literacy levels, learning disabilities)
3. Previous assessment data ie. data or information collected by the teacher about a student’s previous performance/ understanding or skill development
4. National Professional Standards for Teachers http://www.aitsl.edu.au/australian-professional-standards-for-teachers/standards/list
Find a lesson plan that applies to your Method. Some useful websites to get you started are provided below.
Analyse whether the four factors discussed in Part A inform your chosen lesson plan. Where the above factors are included discuss how they inform the lesson plan and if some of the factors are not considered in the lesson plan discuss how you would incorporate them to improve the lesson plan.
