Are you a Dreamer or a Visionary?

Are you a Dreamer or a Visionary?

What differentiates the dreamer from the visionary.  You may have heard “a goal”.  One of the most popular new professions is coaching.  People are hiring coaches to help them achieve their goals in many areas, be it business, health or relationships.  What is the job of these coaches?  To help the person create a viable plan of action.  However, a plan is merely a detailed dream.  One of the jobs of the coach is for the person to feel compelled to follow through on their plan with action.

   An idea, goal or plan without execution is just a dream.

But a viable plan is an important first step.  So, what makes a plan “viable”.  It must consist of steps that you are reasonably capable of taking.  It is equally important that all the steps are ones that help move you toward your goal.  This requires a lot of thoughtfulness and guidance from others who have been successful and can tell you what works and what does not.

This brings us to lesson planning.

The lesson plan I am sharing with you here is a tweaked version of what most pedagogues are trained to use and significantly different from the medical model S.O.A.P.  notes most therapists are trained to use.

  1. Long term Goal
  2. Goal Rationale
  3. Short term Objective
  4. Objective Rationale
  5. Research
  6. Materials
  7. Engagement
  8. Relevance
  9. Check for Understanding

Each of these components requires its own explanation so until next time…

How does your current lesson plan compare to this one?
