notes from Chris ...

  • is there a standard template in Singapore for displaying lesson plans? ... or is it totally up to individual schools or individual teachers?
  • are lesson plans mapped against particular standards in Singapore
  • are cross curriculum areas included in lesson plans ... e.g. ICT, ESL, multicultural, citizenship, special needs etc
  • are lesson plans mapped to the Sg General paper?
  • how is Assessment, Recording and Reporting integrated into Lesson Planning in Sg?
  • is this lesson plan for a specific time period?
  • -
