    [For Teachers] Writing Lesson Objectives & Success Criteria

    If you’re having a hard time writing learning objectives for a three-part lesson, look up and read about these three approaches:

    1. Robert Mager’s Performance-Based Learning Objectives
    2.The ABCD Model for Writing Objectives
    3. Gronlund’s General and Specific Cognitive Objectives

    This is how I do it:
    A – Audience (Be specific about the audience)

    At the end of the lesson, students of 5EKO will be able to:

    B – Behaviour (What do you want them to do?)

    List down 5 factors that influence one’s decision…

    C – Conditions (in what form must the student complete the action in B )

    … in a bubble map…

    D – Degree (how far/ to which extent are they expected to perform?)

    … with the correct spelling.

    Complete example:
    At the end of the lesson, students of 5EKO (A) will be able to:
    List down 5 factors that influence one’s decision (B) in a bubble map (C) with the correct spelling (D).

    WHAT ABOUT THE SUCCESS CRITERIA?

    Based on the above example, C is what you’d like the students to produce. So, it goes like this:

    12 out of 12 students are able to successfully:
    Create a bubble map on what influences one’s decision.

    Best regards,
    Adlina.

    [For Teachers] Daily Lesson Plan Template for Secondary School English Teachers

    Assalamualaikum and good day, it’s been a while since I last posted anything. Life’s been super busy as usual. I’m back to share my version of the Daily Lesson Plan Template for Secondary School English Teachers (SMK). I made both the KSSM and KBSM versions. Feel free to use them if you think they are suitable for you.

    Many states have opted to forgo the traditional book and switch to a more portable medium, mine included. The lesson plan I made is largely based on the three-part-lesson planner. Originally, a three-part lesson is an “inquiry-based learning method used to teach mathematics” overseas. Under Dr. Amin’s guidance (IPGKKB), I started to draft a new lesson plan template that would better reflect PdPcA21 activities for my school. However, to create a one-size-fits-all template is almost impossible because we have not yet fully transitioned to KSSM. So, I decided to come up with different versions instead.

    Pssst… When you open the file, do read the little notes on the right for extra info 😛

    A) EDITABLE INTERACTIVE DAILY LESSON PLAN TEMPLATE (MICROSOFT EXCEL)
    Special Features:
    Drop-down lists for standards, specifications, etc, notes, editable basic Data (time, class name, ..) and a one-click Export to PDF function!
    Requirement: Excel 2010 and newer on Windows -or- Excel for Mac 2011 and newer

    1. Before opening this file, make sure you have the DEVELOPER TAB on the ribbon (how to).
    2. Click Enable Editing or Enable Content when you open the file.
    3. Go to Developer tab and click Macro Security. Choose “Enable all macros”, save the settings and close the dialogue box.
    4. Close the file and reopen it. You can start editing away, yay! Choose the sheet you want to edit.
    5. The default filename for the export to pdf function is “WorksheetName_DayMonthYear_HourMinute.pdf”

    DOWNLOAD INTERACTIVE VERSION (New Version 1.2!):
    Editable Interactive Daily Lesson Plan Template for Secondary School English Teachers (5960 downloads)

    CHANGELOG:
    V1.1 – Uploaded 30 December 2017
    V1.2 – Uploaded 02 January 2018, edited the Data sheet and rearranged a few columns.

    Sidenote: I created this document on a Mac but this template is best used on a Windows machine. On a Mac, you won’t be able to use the “Export to PDF  & Save” option. Regardless, you can still Save as Pdf  normally from the Print Dialogue (command+P).

    B) PRINTABLE PHYSICAL PLANNER VERSION (PDF FILE)
    Requirement: Pdf viewer (e.g Adobe Acrobat, Foxit Reader, etc)

    For those who wish to stick to the traditional ways, you may want to just download and print as many physical copies of the template as you like.

    COLORURED EDITION

    MONOCHROME EDITION

    CHANGELOG:
    V1.1 – Uploaded 30 December 2017
    V1.2 – Edited a typo. Thanks for pointing it out!

    That’s all from me for now. Inshaa Allah I will upload the 2018 version of my printable English student planner tomorrow along with some other things. See you soon!
