What do you want your students to know? Make sure to set clear and measurable goals. “Being familiar with literature” is not a clear or measurable goal. “Being able to calculate the angles of a right triangle” is a clear and measurable goal.
Identify the tools necessary to achieve your objectives.
A math course, for instance, requires the student to use paper, a pencil/pen, and perhaps a calculator or a different counting device. The vast majority of teachers of math use chalkboards or whiteboards to display exercises and explanations for the student's review.
Are there any resources on the Internet that help you meet the goals outlined in the previous step?
Assess the resources in your community.
What is the quality of the resources you identified in the previous step?
Does your classroom have computing devices?
Do your students have access to cell phones that can access online material?
Assess how useful your goals and tools can be for your students in their daily lives.
Can your lessons be tied to local events to demonstrate the utility of the material?
Can your lessons help students to get jobs in your community? If so, how?
