Teacher explanations form an important part of lessons to impart knowledge directly from the expert.
What is crucial in this is that students are fully engaged in what is being explained. To do this the resource includes reference to note taking so that students can refer back to what has been explained. There is also a worksheet showing several different approaches to this. Finally the resource also has a set of timers so that you can keep track of how long you are spending on your explanation.
Lesson Plan Creator note:
If you are using this as part of the Standout Teaching lesson plan you may wish to identify the length of the activity and also give a summary of the explanation being undertaken.
