The teacher candidate is to use the same lesson planning procedures and format as the host teacher. If the host teacher does not specify a lesson plan format, the candidate may use the WGU lesson plan format or other approved format. The candidate must provide the host teacher with written lesson plans in accordance with whatever expectations the host teacher sets. The candidate must also provide you with a lesson plan at least three days prior to any scheduled observation. In addition, you should instruct the teacher candidate to always have lesson plans readily available so that you can look over the lesson plan if you make an unannounced observation visit.
