(11) TRANSPORTATION REQUIREMENTS may be required for a field
(12) TYPE OF INSTRUCTION should list all the types used in this particular
b. Body. Be sure to list the time requirements for the introduction, teaching
points, and closing sections.
(1) Your OPENING STATEMENT should get the attention of the students
and make them want to learn the lesson.
(2) The OBJECTIVES will be the list of training objectives which you
carefully formulated before you wrote the lesson.
(3) If the lesson has a demonstration, practical exercise, or some other part,
the students should be alerted to this fact in the CLASS PROCEDURE AND LESSON
(4) The EXPLANATION indicates that this is a lecture section. It may also
be called DEMONSTRATION, FILM VIDEOTAPE, DISCUSSION, or PROGRAMMED
INSTRUCTION, depending on the instructional method you are using. If a
DEMONSTRATION is to be 15 minutes or less, it can be included in the
EXPLANATION section (and called EXPLANATION/DEMONSTRATION). If the
DEMONSTRATION is longer, it should be included as a separate section, following the
(a) All the main points you intend to cover should be listed in this
(b) If there are subpoints that back up or explain the main points, list
them. If you intend to use stories from you own personal experience, add notes on the
side to jog your memory. These notes should not be considered part of the lesson plan
since they would mean nothing to another instructor who might teach the class.
(c) The NOTE, QUESTION/ANSWER, ILLUSTRATION, or CAUTION
under Part II C should be used as necessary. The Academy of Health Sciences
recommends that at least two questions and answers be included in each lesson plan.
This reminds the instructor to include student participation in each lesson.
(5) A PRACTICAL EXERCISE should follow a DEMONSTRATION section if
this is at all possible. Students learn better when they do something for themselves.
The format included in figure 4-3 is standard for the practical exercise. Only those parts
of the format that are needed should be included. Unlike the HEADING, you may leave
out parts of this section.
