Reflection: Lesson Planning A Road Map for Research: Completing a Thesis Generator and Thesis Topic Sentence-Frame - Section 1: Teacher to Teacher: Lesson Context and Time Frame

 

Some teachers experience trepidation when thinking about writing for students. To solve this problem, prewrite and then write again for students. This think-aloud is what they need. That you have something preplanned is okay. It takes time to get comfortable writing in front of students, and don't worry about messing up. They'll love your bravery and willingness to take a risk with them.
