Lesson Plan Information:  This LESSON PLAN INFORMATION provides directions on how to write a lesson plan using the Child Development department lesson plan template.
Lesson Plan Template:
The lesson plan template is available as a Microsoft Word, Google Docs and PDF document

WORD DOCUMENT:  If you decide to use the Word document, the boxes will expand as you type.  You might want to use this version for extended lesson plans.  This is probably the best option of all.  Be sure to save it on your computer.  LESSON PLAN TEMPLATE.docx


Google Doc:   If you decide to use the Google Doc template, click to copy the template and save to your Google Drive. 


PDF DOCUMENT:  If you decide to use the PDF, it is fillable (meaning you can type right on it).  If you choose this option, please use Internet Explorer or Chrome as your web browser.  Firefox does NOT support the fillable version. Some get it to work on Safari and others don’t.  Be sure to Save As on your computer.  LESSON PLAN TEMPLATE.pdf
