The Lesson Planning Handbook,
This review is from: The Lesson Planning Handbook: Essential Strategies That Inspire Student Thinking and Learning (Paperback)
This short book is one that I have re-read several times. "The Lesson Planning Handbook" is one of my two top picks for educators of all levels.*
"The Lesson Planning Handbook" steers the Instructor toward focusing on the purpose for, and the desired outcome of, each lesson. The end goal must be student comprehension and retention of the material presented. Brunn offers practical advice for getting there.
More than just a guide to lesson-planning, this book offers a theory of education that makes intuitive sense. Solid lesson plans and successful classroom management plans fit together like Lego-blocks.
"The Lesson Planning Handbook" is an excellent resource for teachers and managers of all kinds.
Intentional teaching has great strength, and even magic, in it.
* (My other favorite book for educators is Doug Lemov's "Teach Like A Champion.")
