The 5 minute lesson plan

17 Jul


If you haven’t heard of the 5 minute lesson plan from teachertoolkit that all educators are raging about then you must give it a try. It’s refreshing to clear the decks and plan using simple terms and really gets you to focus on what’s important during the lesson. I particularly like the simple format and focus on learning as opposed to teaching with the bonus being that it should only take 5 minutes to complete.
