This is the lesson plan I learned in school so many years ago.
1) Essential question (writing is preferred) 3-5 min
2) Activating activity 8-10 min
3) Guided practice 10-15 min
4) Unguided practice 10-15 min
5) Assessment 5-6 min
6) Reflection 2-3 min
I have used it for the last 26 years. All I do is the activating activity and plan 2 activities for the class, and a short assessment which is usually MC or short answer.
