Backward Planning a Quality Lesson
Step 3: Key Skills & Content
You're ALMOST ready to teach.
You wrote the Target Task that students will complete today.
You did the Target Task yourself and learned exactly what the task asks of students.
Step three describes how to maintain a laser focus on the content and skills kids will need to complete the Target Task. You'll write a detailed (and manageable) list that will focus your activities and your feedback on what really matters to today's lesson. As a result, you'll teach exactly what needs to be taught, and give feedback on only key content and skills.
