About the lesson plan:

A lesson plan is a plan or design for teaching a particular lesson. Generally, a lesson plan is a written document. Sometimes for an experienced teacher lesson plan could be imaginative. To make the lesson effective, fruitful, and easier for the students a teacher plans and designs his or her lesson according to modern pedagogy.

To make the lesson interesting a teacher should follow some techniques. The teacher also should be friendly so that students feel easy to ask questions related to the lesson. Moreover, the teacher also should put the students in pairs and groups to involve every single student in different activities. Students feel easy whenever they work with their friends and learn. The teacher will ensure the forming of the group by including mixed-level students in every single group. During the pair or group work the teacher will monitor and help the students.

Learning outcome:

Every single lesson has its own learning outcome. The teacher puts emphasis on learning outcomes while designing the lesson plan.

There are four skills and two types of knowledge in the English language. The skills are listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The knowledges are grammar and vocabulary. Our English for today is designed in such a way so that students can acquire the four basic skills of the English language and knowledge of vocabulary and grammar.

Skills are talents and expertise. We obtain skills through education, training, and experience. We can differentiate skills as soft skills and hard or technical skills. Communication skills are known as soft skills. On the contrary, computer programming is a hard or technical skill.

The teacher should ensure the creation of a happy and interesting learning environment where students can speak without any hesitation. In a language class, the teacher should speak less and allow the students to speak more. This will help the students to develop their speaking skills.

Reading is an important skill among the 4 skills. To test the reading skills of the students one or more reading passages are given in the questions paper. Based on the reading text various types of test types are set.

Students have to answer the test types based on their reading of the given passage. The test types are MCQ, True or False, Information transfer, Gap filling, etc.

Reading skill is important not only for SSC or HSC exams but also for IELTS. So, teachers should motivate students to develop their reading skills.
