How to make a Daily Language Learning Plan



The Daily Language Lesson Plan is normally part of a set of lessons making up a Unit. It therefore has all the same basic parts as a Unit Plan, but just enough for one day.


There is a worksheet available to use when you make daily lesson plans .


You need to have identified some learning objectives before you can make your lesson plan

  • Be as specific as possible and write objectives in such a way that you will know whether or not you have achieved them.


    If your objective is learn common vocabulary, it is too vague. Be able to name at least 20 common animals is a specific objective because you can test yourself by naming 20 animals.

  • Write out what you intend to do during the lesson in as much detail as possible at first. The tendency is to be too general, which leaves you fumbling around, trying to decide what to do when you implement the plan.
  Follow these steps to make a Daily Language Learning Plan:
  1. List the particular objectives you want to achieve in this lesson.
  2. List one or more activities or techniques which will help you meet each objective.
  3. List the materials you need to do each technique.
  4. Allot a certain amount of time to each activity.
  5. List evaluation criteria for the lesson
