6143.1 Lesson Plans


Northfield, New Jersey Monitored


Policy X Other Reasons





All teachers are required to maintain and use an updated curriculum guide for preparation of lesson plans for each subject taught. Lesson plans must include objectives which specify what students should know, or be able to do, at the completion of that lesson. Lesson plans should be prepared in enough detail with enough clarity to enable a substitute teacher to carry on the program during the absence of a teacher.


When the teacher plans to use materials not included in the curriculum guide, he/she should list these materials in the lesson plan.


The building principal shall check lesson plans on a regular basis.
