Alessonplancan bedescribedas a guideusedby instructorsto determinewhatstudentswill learnandhowtheobjectivesof thelearningoutcomeswill be achieved.Before preparinga lessonplan,itis essentialto identifytheteachinggoals.TheCalifornia missionlessonplanhas certainobjectivesthatitsetout to achieve.Based on my evaluation, thelessonplancan be classifiedas comprehensivesince ithas listedtheobjectivesthatstudentshaveto achievebefore theendof thelessons.Theobjectiveshavebeenclearlyarticulated,andtheyreflectwhatstudentsshould learnas thelessonscontinue.Thus,theclearobjectivesare an indicationthatthelessonplanhas mettherequiredstandardsa completelessonplan(Bulgeret al, 2002).

Thelessonplanhas alsotakeninto considerationsomeof thekeycomponentssuchas standards.In thestandardssection,thelessonplanhas highlighted thestandardsthatstudentsof Grade 4 should followin orderto makethelessonplansuccessful(CRLT,2014). Thecontents of thestandardsare in linewith theGrade of thestudents,as theyare not complicatedin sucha waythattheycan confuseGrade 4 students.Thestandardsare alsoachievable,andstudentseasilymasterthem whetherin groupsoras individuals.I am in fullsupportof whatthestandardswill entailandthedescriptionsthatstudentswill give,as wellas thevariousaspectsanddisciplinesthatstudentswill describe.With suchstandards,itis obviousthattheobjectivesof thelessonplanwill bemetwith a lotof ease.

Thecontent of thelessonplanabout howthestandardswill beachievedis alsoclearlystatedandwhollydescribeswhatstudentswill do.In orderto enhancethesuccessin thelearningprocess,itis alwaysessentialthatstudentscollaboratewith one another.Thishas beendescribedin thelessonplanas theuseof teacher-led discussions,in-group, as wellas one-on-one discussions.Thisway,thelearningoutcomeswill be achievedas everystudentis assigneda role,which theyhaveto playeffectivelyin thecourseof thelessons.Thelessonplancan beappraisedas ittakesinto considerationthedevelopmentsandchangesthat havetakenplacein theeducationsector.Theincorporationof technology in thelessonplanwill ensurethatstudentslearntheimportanceof computer-assisted learning.Technology has becomea pivotalcomponentin anylearningendeavor(Ivers&amp Pierson, 2003).
