<>Combining concise theoretical explanations with practical, hands-on activities, Writing Effective Lesson Plans: A 5-Star Approach is a foolproof teacher’s guide to designing and developing successful lesson plans.

Developed by two educators with experience in both elementary and secondary classrooms, the 5-Star approach to lesson planning is a step-by-step procedure designed to streamline the detailed process of lesson planning and make teaching performance smoother and more efficient. Coined as the Five-Star Lesson Plan by the authors, this model consists of five classic components: lesson description, goals and objectives, materials and tools, procedures, and reflective assessment and evaluation.

From the basic components of preparation to the intricacies of development, this workbook guides beginning and experienced teachers through each of the five steps for creating a lesson plan that best meets the needs of every student.  It also explores the inherent challenges to effective lesson planning, such as time efficiency, knowledge construction, skill development, involving the students’ families, and implementing your plan. This text is a one-stop resource that encourages deep and thoughtful learning of a skill that is often not sufficiently developed in teacher preparation programs or in classroom experiences.
