(3) The student will solve problems that demonstrate his ability to read and
(4) On a series of prepared problems, the student will demonstrate his
knowledge of basic mathematics skills and how to apply these skills.
b. Working Through Intermediate Training Objectives. A medic who has
never learned basic mathematics skills will be unable to successfully complete the
original objective. If the student or students need instruction in these skills, this
instruction must come before any other skill listed in the series. If you find that the
students can read and interpret the doctor's order (or some other intervening step), then
skip this instruction and go to the next step. If you think through each training objective,
you will be able to locate those skills that are presumed to be mastered for the
successful completion of the required training.
4-12. PREPARE THE LESSON PLAN (SEE FIGURE 4-3)
a. Sections. When the training objectives have been established to your
satisfaction, it is time to prepare the lesson plan. The lesson plan (LP) is the blueprint for the
instructor's planned activities. The lesson plan consists of three or more major sections:
(1) Heading. The heading will list the administrative requirements, the
resource requirements, and matters pertaining to student preparation.
(2) Body. The body will list the introduction, the main teaching points, the
subpoints, and their order of presentation. This may include sections on lecture,
demonstration, and student practice (among others).
(3) Closing. The closing will include the summary and closing remarks. If
there are annexes, they are included after the closing section.
b. Time. The section heading for the body and closing also include the time
required to teach each section. If you are using prepared lessons, these will be done
for you. If not, you will need to write your own. Under either condition, it will be
necessary for you to research the subject matter until you know it thoroughly.
c. References. The prepared lesson plan will have the references listed in the
heading. You will need to locate your own references when you prepare the lesson.
Your primary resource for those lessons you write yourself should be the Soldier's
Manual for the skill level of the MOS you are instructing. The Soldier's Manuals are
very important because the SDT testing is based on the tasks explained there.
