Some teachers with experience seem to have an ability to think on their feet, and this allows them to believe that lesson planning is unnecessary. However, most teachers do not share this view and prepare their lessons. The resulting lesson plans range from the very formal and elaborate t a few hurried notes. but even the notes are still a plan of a kind. 

For students, evidence of a plan shows that the teacher has devoted time to thinking about the class. it strongly suggests a level of professionalism and a commitment to the kind of research they might reasonably expect. Lack of a plan may suggest the opposite of these teacher attributes, even if such a perception is unjustified.

For teachers, a plan gives the lesson a framework, an overall shape. it is true that they may end up departing from it at some stage of the lesson, but at the very least it will be something to fall back on. Of course, good teachers are flexible and respond creatively to what happens to the classroom, but they also need to have a thought ahead, to have a destination which they want their students to reach, and some idea of how they are going to get there. In the classroom, a plan helps to remind teachers what they intended to do- especially if they get distracted or momentarily forget what they had proposed.

Lesson plan becomes essentially important when a teacher is to be observed as part of an assessment or perfomance review.The observer also gets an idea of what the teacher intends and how well that intention is carried through.The lesson plan samples posted here will serve as samples for teachers who are too busy to find their own ideas and resources.
