LESSON PLAN (2018-2019)


Student teacher: John Keegan Topic: Coat Hanger Project.
Pupil Year Group: 1st Year MTW Number of students: 22
Lesson Number: 16 Duration of lesson: 75 Mins
Date: 31st Jan 2019 Time of Lesson: 9:40

How has the previous lesson informed my planning for this lesson?
Due to the fact that this group is one that is split between me and the co-operating teacher, I had to
take time to talk to the teacher as to see what stage the students are currently at. From the
previous lesson I am aware that there me be a number of students working on the marking out
process of the project, others will be working on gluing up the project. During today’s lesson I plan
to take time to demonstrate the dangers and hazards when using and handling a chisel. Todays
lesson will see a few of the students moving onto the finishing and gluing stage of the project.
During the lesson I will be encouraging the students to ask questions regarding the project. During
the lesson students will be selected to drill out the hole on their piece. Students decide how many
holes they want on their work piece and where. Students have previously used the pillar drill and
will only need a quick introduction to the machine. Constructive/ positive feedback will be used to
motivate and engage students’ in the project. The majority of the students will be at a stage to glue
their own work by the end of todays lesson.

1) Aims:
The main aims of this lesson are:

• Enhance student’s psychomotor ability through breaking down of the working drawing.
• Enhance the student’s cognitive ability by involving numeracy into the working drawing.
• Activity work on the coat hanger project.
• Demonstrate my method of class demonstrations and what I expect from the group.
• Classify the many dangers when using a chisel.
• Navigate the students to the gluing stage of the project.

• Students used their initiative to help other students and bring them up to date with
the project.
• All students working on the pillar drill where competent in the set up and understood
the dangers with the machine.
• When over at the gluing station, students showed the correct procedures when gluing
the dowels.


• Some students were still at the marking out stage of the project so I had to take time
out and bring them together for a demonstration.
• There was an issue with the clamp for the pillar drill.

Suggestions for the Next Lesson

• For the next project I plan on introducing a tick the box method so I can see what stage
each student is at in the project.
