Ah! The lesson plan. As out-of-school time (OST) professionals, you have been challenged to rise to the demands of an evolving field, and this includes the development of lesson plans. Learn how to complete an effective lesson plan by infusing the key components necessary to make your activities come to life. Learn the why behind each component, and how to build a lesson plan that works best for you. Whether you are new to writing lesson plans, or looking to brush up your skills, this training will help you to improve your lesson plan writing skills.
Fostering the love of science and reading begins with fun and engaging learning opportunities in out-of-school-time (OST). This training delivers best practice strategies for conducting STEAM (Science, Technology, Arts, Engineering and Math) activities and read-aloud strategies in the OST setting.
