Unit 5 talks about planning the lessons. Though there are some theorists who think that making lesson plans isn't a good idea for it hinders flexibility on the part of the teacher and it makes a teacher- centered lesson instead of a student-centered one. However, it cannot be denied that it also plays a number of important functions and it helps a lot especially for the inexperienced teachers. Thus, lesson planning serves a great role as far as its functions are concern. First, it is an aid to planning and it helps the teacher to logically think what the class will do all throughout the time frame. The teacher will be is also guided not only for the thing she/she needs to do but output and the objectives she/he wishes to achieved at the end. Second, it serves as a working document; third, a record she/he can refer to for future uses. Further, this will also make the teacher become more organized and well-prepared. Though it isn't necessarily mean the teacher needs to create a long format of it, but a simple guide will surely help. And the teacher must make sure he/she is still prepared to switch some alternatives in case his/her plans isn't effective. That's where flexibility comes in.
