Follow established guidelines and school policies regarding lesson planning. You should use the same procedures and format as the host teacher. If your host teacher does not specify a lesson plan format, use the WGU lesson plan (opens new window) or contact your cohort facilitator for an appropriate lesson plan format. Discuss with the host teacher when and how they expect you to submit your lesson plans. Be sure to submit your lesson plans to your host teacher as directed. Also be sure to submit lesson plans to your clinical supervisor at least 3 days prior to any scheduled observation. In addition, you should always have lesson plans readily available so that your clinical supervisor can look over them if you have an unannounced observation visit.
