Did you know that Milady publishes Lesson Plans and Instructor Support Slides? These tools are developed and are ready for you to use in your classrooms. You may wonder, why would I want to use a prepared lesson plan rather than writing my own?
There are several reasons will want to use Milady Lesson Plans and Instructor Support Slides:
It doesn’t matter who is teaching which class, by using the same lesson plan, you can make sure that every student is receiving the same content regardless of who is teaching. Every student gets the same education!
Now it is also important that we make each lesson our own. That doesn’t mean that we ignore parts of the lesson plan or just go rogue and do our own thing. To create the consistency, we must all follow the lesson plan, but the way we make it our own is by adding juicy details to the lesson plan!!
The second reason you might want to consider using our Lesson Plans and Instructor Support Slides is that of time. Let’s face it, we don’t have a lot of time to prepare for our classes and any advantage we have is worth it.
Create great lessons by adding tips, tricks, and stories that keep the students engaged. You have tons of stories that you can add in to help make the lesson come to life. But don’t get lost in just stories of your past, you need to bring other details you find in articles, blog posts, websites and videos that support the content.
