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 (opens new window) 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 the clinical supervisor with a lesson plan at least three days prior to all scheduled observations. Additionally, the teacher candidate should always have lesson plans readily available so that the clinical supervisor can look over the lesson plan in the case of an unannounced observation visit.
