When planning lessons for your students, it is important that you think about how meaningful it is from the student's perspective. Teachers also need to think about how they will integrate the enduring ideas, key concepts, and essential questions. It is important to think about a way to engage students in a way that they can answer why they are learning something and what it means. I also think that it is important that students become researchers and problem solvers. It is good to get the students thinking on their own and develop their own ideas. When teachers give students the answers all of the time or just have the students answer yes or not questions, the student never thinks outside of the box. Teachers should want students to learn how to learn. This is made possible in many ways, but it can be done through reflection and how they got to the finished product. When teachers are planning instruction, it is also important that they provide opportunities for students to apply what they have learned. This is helpful to the student when they can relate what they have just learned to the real world. This can also help the students figure out why they are leaning something. Students need to be aware of why they are being asked to do or learn something.
