Lesson Plan (Welson Bossing) is a statement of achievements to

to his interest, needs, abilities and level of maturity.
2. A lesson plan includes framing objects and choosing subject
matter, problems, materials and evaluation technique.

the better.
4. A lesson plan serves as a guide to the apprentice teacher.
5. Planning presents waste of time

I. Objectives they are divided to the changes in the behavior
of the learners.
Cognitive refer to the mental ability (Learning facts &
Affective refer to the behavior & characteristics (Attitude
Psychomotor refer to the action ( Habits & Skills)

II. Subject Matter
Topic/Concepts Title of the days lesson
Reference: Title of the book, Author/s, pages
Materials Colorful, Meaningful, Attractive Visual
Strategies different methods strategies used
depending on the aim, teacher, learner , lesson
Skills Verbs taken from the Objective (Gerund
Subject/s Integration to the lesson
Values focused values
III. Learning Activities
a. Preparatory Activities
Drill activity that will enable the students to automize
response to a prerequisites skill of the new lesson
Review activity that will refresh or renew previously
taught material
Introduction activity that will set the purpose of the day
All activities should be motivating to arouse the interest of
the learners

These motivational activities could be in two types:
1. Intrinsic Motivation
Sustaining self interest to learn
Maintains self curiosity and involvement the work by
using purpose, doubt, as well as familiar things
2. Extrinsic Motivation
Real life situation or within the experience of the
learners are incorporated
The teachers uses different activities as a vehicle to
translate the knowledge, values and skills into learning
that could be applied in their lives outside the school

3. Discussion/ Analysis asking of a series of effective or
cognitive questions about the lesson presented

4. Abstraction/Generalization
The summary of the lesson
Organizing significant information about the lesson
Complete graphics organizer like concept maps, venn
diagram, fish bone, table, matrices, etc.

5. Closure/Application relates the lesson to other situation in
the forms of:
Dramatization simulation and play
Storytelling, oral reading
Construction drawing
Written composition
Singing or reciting a poem
b. Evaluation Determine whether the objectives are met
and achieved
Questioning, summarizing, journals
Assigning work-project, research
Administering short query, portfolios

c. Assignment an activity done outside the classroom/s
at home
Reinforce or enrich the days lesson
Set the materials that students have to bring to
school to implement the next lesson
The acrivity should help attain the days lesson
Objectives. It should be interesting and
provides goals to be attained,
give direction to the class discussion,
call for outcomes to expect.
aim is usually broad in scope and may be the objective of a
course, subject or semester.\
It cannot be attained in one lesson. Ex. To develop
Usually attainable in a specific lesson and contributes to the
accomplishing of the general aim.

There should be 3 objectives in the 3 domains of learning

T-ime bound

Detailed - anticipating teaching because it puts into writing
the classroom activities that may occur. It is divided into 2
column----The TA and SA/PA. It is the longest plan because
it contains the procedure w/ questions and answer from the
Semi-detailed shorter that the detailed. No longer divided
into two columns because PA/SA is omitted. It copies the
different steps in the procedure from the preparatory to the
Brief shorter that the semi-detailed. It copies all the
onjective, subject matter, evaluation & assignment from the
semi-detailed. In the procedure, only important greetings are
copied from preparatory activities and lesson proper. The
different steps are omitted.
