Communication is of utmost importance in lesson planning and presentation. The lesson should have a clearly stated objective in teacher language with state & local standards referenced. Then, break down that information into questions (using student friendly, easily understood, language) that the students should be able to answer at the end of the day's lesson. Not only will this teach the children to self-assess, but it will help them learn to articulate what they do not understand. I am a math educator and I might ask something like this:
What does the word product mean?
Can you draw a picture to show me the product of 3 and 4?
Create a word problem whose answer would be a product of two numbers?
Hope this gives you a start.

I will add: State the objectives both written (on the board) and verbally. It can't be more clear than that ;)
Then have them use math to solve a problem. Application. Through doing, we learn.
