The diffcult part of the lesson planning, I find, are two question: “How will I teach it?” and “How will I know if the students understand?” Planning a lesson is all about progression and regression, but also ensuring that you tick all the boxes in terms of engaging students for 60 minutes and making sure they develop skills during activities. The other part that concerns me is the time available to meet the content requirements taking into consideration that the lesson might not run according to plan a lot of the times (Abdul Gafoor, & Farooque, 2010).
