Anticipatory set is the sixth step in writing a flawless reading lesson plan. While writing out this section of the lesson plan you must outline how you will activate the students prior knowledge, and present a brief summary of what they will be learning.
For this section, you can reference step two of the general 8 step lesson plan format for ideas and questions to ask yourself before writing out your anticipatory set.Example:
- Ask students to close their eyes and visualize what they know about a farm.
- Ask the class to contribute to a discussion about what they know about the animals on a farm.
- Remind students of a class trip to a farm.
- Tell the class how important farm animals are to the earth.
