Teaching Preparation Series, Lesson planning: How do I structure my time in the classroom?
Noon to 1:15 p.m.
Zoom link shared after registration

In this workshop, participants will learn the basic outline of a lesson and practice creating these steps for their own teaching material: the objective, introduction, activity, wrap-up, and assessment. We will dwell on the “activity” stage to discuss scaffolding techniques. Finally, participants will brainstorm assessment methods to check if their lesson plans were successful. Instructors will leave with a useable lesson plan for their classrooms. Event Details
