SHORT-TERM TEACHING PLAN Short-term planning in an education context generally means establishing what learning and teaching should take place on a daily basis.

3 Advice for Eric Eric was made aware of the difference between simplifying concepts to aid comprehension and reducing subject content to such a low level that it was not fit for purpose. Subsequently, he explored the importance of sequencing concepts to aid comprehension, and explaining abstract concepts in relation to more concrete concepts that pupils already understood. This helped Eric to reflect meaningfully on the progression from Year 7 to post-16, and to understand that many concepts appeared time and again, requiring increasingly complex levels of knowledge.

By the end of this chapter you should be able to understand: • The need for planning • How to apply this to a lesson in Computing • Computing coursework and project planning. WHY PLAN? All good teachers need to plan carefully. Poor planning leads to poor learning and teaching. At the beginning of your career you will have to plan extensively because of the need to understand the process thoroughly, and because you will not be able to complete the training successfully without demonstrating your ability to prepare thoroughly.
