Lesson Plan Patterns  


Having a set routine to your English classes helps you prepare the lesson, and also empowers students by giving them a routine to become familiar with.
Here are three patterns for lessons that are tried-and-true:

The Eigo Note text commonly uses this pattern for a lesson:

  1. Greetings & Warm-up
  2. Introduction
  3. Expansion
  4. Practice
  5. Wrap-up & Farewells

My own pattern for teaching a lesson:
  1. Greetings
  2. Warm-up/Review and/or Recycle/Conversation Skills Training
  3. Teaching/Introduction
  4. Practice
  5. Accuracy Testing
  6. Production
  7. Wrap-up/Closing

My friend Michael Sullivan offers the following lesson pattern:
  1. Greetings
  2. Review (repeat activity from last class for a short time)
  3. Introduce new language
  4. Main Activity
  5. Wrap-up/Good-bye
