The importance of lesson planning
Some teachers like to believe that because they are experienced and are quick to think on their feet, they do not need a lesson plan. In truth, most teachers have some sort of plan in mind, no matter how informal, before they enter the classroom.
Good teachers will have looked at the material they are going to teach, will have determined that it is appropriate for their students, will have looked at vocabulary and language to ascertain possible problem areas, and will have considered ways of presenting the material so that the students are motivated, interested and willing participants in the lesson.
NB! Your assignments will be graded as much on your use of the English language as it is on the content. Be sure to pay close attention to your use of English, as poorly written assignments will result in low marks or a failed assignment.
