Sample Language Learning Lesson Plan

Sample Language Learning Lesson Plan – Spencer Coffman

Lesson plans are important because they provide the teacher with something to teach the students. In addition, they ensure that the students will actually learn something during the class. Having a detailed lesson plan that follows the proper lesson plan layout will help the teacher to be more prepared and feel comfortable teaching the class.

A lesson plan is like a map to the classroom. Without one, the teacher may seem lost, unprepared, unprofessional, unintelligent, et cetera. The teacher should have an outline of the lesson plan written down and available during class. That way there will be no confusion about what to do next, how much time to spend on each activity, et cetera.


Take A Look At These Five Methods to Learn a Language


Due to the fact that lesson plans are relatively easy to create, every teacher should use them. In addition, there are hundreds of templates, sample plans, and activities available. Thus, there is no excuse not to have a plan. It is an easy and foolproof method of ensuring that teachers at least look like they know what they are doing even if they feel like they do not.

Here is an example lesson plan for teaching English. Of course, any language could be substituted. You’ll notice there are 6 lessons. This is done so that you have an extra lesson in case your students move more quickly through some lessons compared to others.
