Top Tips For Creating A Typical EFL Lesson Plan

A lesson plan is a framework for a lesson. If you imagine a lesson is like a journey, then the lesson plan is the map. It shows you where you start, where you finish and the route to take to get there.

Whatever the level of your experience, it is important that you take time to get through your lesson before you enter the classroom and write clear notes about what you are going to do during this lesson.

Here are my top tips for creating a typical EFL lesson plan:

1. Set the instructional objectives.

2. List the resources and teaching aids.

3. State the framework of the lesson.

4. Divide the lesson into the following four main stages:

  • Warm-up.
  • Presentation.
  • Practice and.
  • Assessment.

5. Reflect on the lesson after finishing it.
