Lesson Six: KISS (Keep it Short and Sweet) or in my case (Keep it Simple Stupid)

Success! I have finally planned an impromptu lesson in under an hour! Before entering this experience, we had our unit plans outlined and planned out. However, I have had to almost completely scrap my initial plan as my expectations were very different than my classroom reality. I have learned to keep it simple and allow your unit to be emergent (develop according to student interest). I have been told that this “is what real teachers do anyway.” It is good to have a general idea of where you want to go, but it is unrealistic to have a unit completely planned down to the last detail.
