Lesson plan

What is a lesson note?
A lesson note is step by step guide into a specific lesson made by the teacher before the lesson; it can also contain important information about the expected outcome of the lesson, the sources of information and students’ data.

What is a lesson plan?
A lesson plan is a teacher’s detailed description of the course of instruction or “learning trajectory” for a lesson. A daily lesson plan is developed by a teacher to guide class learning. Details will vary depending on the preference of the teacher, subject being covered, and the needs of the students.

NOTE:¬†A lesson plan or note is not what is given to pupils or students to copy, that’s why it is called a plan, it is different from your class note which is copied by pupils or students, to some teachers after the class students are to firm their notes from their textbooks still others form notes themselves from the textbooks for the students to copy. A lesson note or plan contains only the main points in the subject matter to be taught and how to not full details.
