Planning is the ability to visualize into the future creating arranging, organizing, and designing events into the mind that may occur in the classroom.

Planning is the way of managing time and events.

Planning for instruction provides and type of road map or guide that assists you in creating a flow of events that has and starting and ending point. Planning for teaching is the ability to make decisions about the how and what of teaching.

Creates an opportunity for a higher-level questioning

Assists in ordering supplies

Guides substitute teachersC. Phases

E. Planning Process

1. Affecting variables




Learning context

Materials and resources


involving preparation for a year or semester. It serves the following


adapts the curriculum to fit the teachers knowledge and priorities.

helps the teacher to learn the structure and content of the new curricula

establishes purposes. UNIT PLANNING

involves breakdown of the framework into specific units. It has uses:

bridges the gap between long term and day-to-day lesson planning

ties objectives and activities together in a logical, coherent manner providing structure for new material LESSON PLANNING

generates specific plan of action for a specific class period. It deals with the what, why, and how to teach.3. Levels


1. Yearly Planning Establishing general content Students General outline

2. Term Planning Detailing of content to be covered in next three months Direct contact with students

Time constraints set by school schedule Elaboration of outline

3. Unit Planning Developing a sequence of well-organized learning experiences Materials, length of lessons, set up time, demand, format Lists of sequenced activities

4. Weekly

Planning Laying out the

weeks activities

Adjusting schedule for interruptions and special needs Scheduled school interruptions Names and frequency of activities

5. Daily Planning Setting up and


classroom for the

next day

Preparing students for days activities Assessment of class disposition at start of day

Continued interest, involvement and enthusiasm Schedule for day written on the chalkboard and discussed with students
