As MYP educators, we are masters of planning the big picture for our units. We do this through the inquiry section of our units. Since our units change direction based on a variety of factors, such as what is happening in the world around us and student generated inquiry questions, it can often be challenging to pre-plan our teaching and learning lesson by lesson. Moreover, we also need to adapt our units based on evolving student needs.

The five minute lesson plan templates can be used in conjunction with your IB MYP unit planner to create more robust lesson plans. They are meant to help you provide structure to your MYP lessons, and bring in some of the important elements from your unit planners into your classroom. With these templates, you will be able to design or quickly modify the structure of your lesson to suit your dynamic classroom needs in no time. You will also be able to run quick checks to ensure that each lesson has support for diverse learners through differentiation and that you have clear learning objectives identified for each lesson. What’s even better is that these five minute lesson plan templates support teachers in being responsive to student inquiry!

How to use this resource:

  • During collaborative planning meetings to ideate on key learning objectives and lesson plan ideas
  • To focus on explicit learning experiences for ATL skills, IB learner profile attributes and service learning
  • As posters for bright classroom displays to promote interactive teaching and learning!
