5 Teaching Strategies to Transform Your Lesson Plans

Today on TeacHHUB.com, we look at some teaching strategies that are designed to transform your lesson plans.
The article, penned by frequent contributing writer (and seasoned elementary school educator) Janelle Cox, lays out five ways that teachers can positively alter their lesson plans for the better.
Janelle’s ideas include:
  • Use the Goldilocks Approach for Planning Objectives
  • Use Visual Learning Strategies
  • Give Students a Choice
  • And More!

Janelle sums up her article like this: “If your goal is to create transformational lessons, then they should focus on enriching the lives of your students. You can do this by carefully crafting your objectives so they are not too broad or too specific, but just right. In addition to that, they should be engaging and go beyond the textbook, incorporate visuals, and give students the opportunity of choice. When you do this, along with planning your assessment first, then you have ultimately transformed your lessons so that your students will be engaged and motivated to learn.”
