The National Council for Curriculum Assessment (NaCCA) has refuted claims that it has instructed teachers to stop writing daily Lesson Plans.
NaCCA in a statement to EducationGhana indicated that its outfit was miscommunicated by the general public on the writing of Lesson Plans.
According to NaCCA, the task of writing daily lesson plans has been simplified with the introduction of a template for writing the lesson plan in a weekly format.
“The new format whilst easy to develop and less cumbersome, contains as much details to enable teachers effectively teach lessons as the daily lesson plan format.” The statement said.
“Teachers and other relevant stakeholders must be careful not to confuse the weekly lesson plan format with the format for the sample scripted lessons in the Teacher Resource Pack.”
“The Scripted lessons in the Teacher Resource Pack are sample daily lessons that seek to educate teachers on how to effectively carry-out the learner-centred teaching approaches and associated assessment procedures enshrined in the new standards-based curriculum. “
“As an agency, NaCCA will continue to develop more scripted lessons to assist teachers implement the new standards-based curriculum effectively.”
“Teachers are however required to prepare the weekly scheme of learning/lesson plan for inspection and vetting by the appropriate authorities.” It emphasized.
