Lesson Plan Preparation
Teachers may use a document, often called a lesson plan, to organize the elements of a subject that is to be taught on a given day, or days. It identifies objectives, preparation required, and evaluation. A lesson plan covers an element of a course of study.
This appendix is intended to acquaint the reader with reference material that will assist one in the design and preparation of a draft lesson plan for a teacher's consideration.
Don't limit your review of the following lesson plan listings to aerodynamics or aircraft. You may find what you want in related fields such as science, mathematics, or computer technology.
