Making a lesson plan is a first step towards success. Many teachers believe in making a lesson plan, so that it is easier for them and the students. The teacher will know how to exactly start the topic and end it without missing any part of it. With the help of a lesson plan every matter of the subject is covered. First to thing to know are your students. Get to know about their background, their interest levels, ability, knowledge and special needs. This may take a while.

Next thing to do is to get to know the content of the subject you are going to teach. It is very important to know the curriculum. Mark your goals. Your goal should be to deliver the subject content easily to the students and they should fully get what you have taught them. Your objective should be to see whether your teaching has helped your students by seeing their performance in the class. Keep all the materials ready that are going to be required for that subject. Have a great impact of the subject on your students by giving a suitable introduction. Give a lot of practice to your students so that it stays in their mind. Finally wrap the subject content with a good note. These are the various ways of making a lesson plan.

If you're teaching in many state schools or other organisations, there may well be a lesson plan provided for you, or at least a blueprint offered which shows which areas are regarded as important. If the organisation you're working for hasn't offered any guidelines on planning, it's worth asking your head of department to give you some help. Apart from that, there are certain things which should always be borne in mind. A good lesson plan starts with the question "What will the learners be able to do/ know at the end of this lesson that they couldn't do before?" In other words, it's a statement of aims. Once you've decided that, you need to decide how this aim will be achieved – eg will you explain the topic first or let the students work it out through the materials? will there be any testing and if not, how will you assess what they've learned? will they work alone or in groups? what materials will you need? and so on. Whether you write all this down depends on you, but the questions themselves soon become second nature.
