After this course, I have fresh ideas for evaluating students as they approach tasks and skill development in class. So many helpful takeaways and I appreciate the lesson planning template. I have made a variety of templates but will make sure objectives are clearly (and simply) written with the specific outcomes mentioned too. 



Each and every one of the methods learned in this course brings a lot of teaching and will surely be very useful to apply in the classroom.

On the opposite page, I note what was covered - how the lesson unfolded, any key things to keep in mind, and then list next steps (either for next class, for a follow up assignment, or what needs to be introduced, reinforced, interacted with, etc.) I sometimes note if a particular… >>>

I learned that lesson plans are the foundation of a good course.  That organization is key in developing lesson plans and that printing them out and keeping them in a folder is the best way to keep them.

I learned that using what your students already know can help with lesson planning.  That flexibility based on student assessments is a reasonable approach.
