In our today’s latest article guide from Latest Ghana, I would like to show you how to prepare lesson notes as a teacher living in Ghana or beyond.
But what then is a lesson note?
A lesson note is a step by step or a guide plan for a lesson or a class that a teacher plans to have contact with or to teach. A lesson note explains one, some, or all of the steps outlined in a lesson plan.
A lesson note can also be said to be a tool for documenting the flow of a topic or a class and its impact on students. As a teacher, lesson notes let you track how a topic is to be delivered, its objectives, and how he/she is to assess students’ understanding of what they have been taught.
Some teachers in Ghana, try to confuse lesson note to lesson plan. Both are very distinct from each other but aid to improve the learning of the student.
A lesson plan is a drawing of the steps/actions through which a teacher expects to teach a class to attain the objectives of that class without unnecessary details. In contrast, a lesson note is a detailed explanation of the steps/actions or a reminder of what a teacher should do.
As a teacher making lesson notes is an easier way to learn and increase your progress in a classroom or lecture hall. Lesson notes are basic notes that show how a particular class is expected to be taught and what the students’ are expected to have learned at the end of the class.
