Planning for Instruction and Supports
A lesson plan is the instructor's road map for what students should learn and how they will learn it effectively throughout the class. You must first determine the instructional outcomes before you can design your lesson. Then you may create relevant learning activities and ways for getting feedback on student progress.
Good lesson preparation is critical to teaching and student learning. A well-prepared instructor increases the likelihood of a successful lesson for all learners. Creating relevant lessons takes time and commitment, but the end result can make a world of difference in a student’s education and life.(Steffek, 2022)

Gradual Release Model
Direct Instruction (mini-lesson) follows the gradual release model, in which the teacher first demonstrates the teaching point, models the new learning (I Do), then provides the students guided practice (We Do).
