Does anyone have a simple, basic format for lesson planning they can recommend or send me? I have a lot of new unexperienced teachers.

When I've wanted teachers to really think about what they were doing I did something this:Name of activityMaterials neededLearning goal(s)Procedure which included how to introduce activity to children, what the children do & what the teacher does, and how it endsEvaluation (how will you know if it worked?When I was being brief I'd list learning centers and what was in them, focus of large and small groups, equipment/materials for outdoor play. What I'm doing now, as someone with graduate degrees, 30+ years of experience, and keen dislike for planning is not what you're looking for....!
