Professional practice pathway: Managing the lesson
Managing the lesson is a key factor in ensuring classes run smoothly and students are engaged in learning. This professional practice involves managing every aspect of the lesson during the class time. This includes controlling the pace and timing of activities, signalling transitions between stages of the lesson, adjusting the classroom layout to support learning, responding to unexpected classroom events, making effective use of resources and equipment, giving instructions effectively and checking understanding. It involves monitoring learner engagement in order to maintain motivation, establishing and maintaining classroom discipline, adjusting plans to take advantage of opportunities for learning that emerge during lessons and reflecting on lesson management.
