A subject like English can be divided into different aspects such as oral English, grammar, or comprehension. You should indicate the aspect on a separate line. After the subject would be the class, e.g. Class: JSS Two. The item that follows is the topic of the day’s lesson, e.g. Topic: Concord.
The duration of the lesson should be included. This means the length or period of time that the class would hold. If the lesson note is meant for a double period, you should indicate it. E.g. Duration: 50 minutes.
Some schools prefer the actual period of time the class is expected to hold to be stated, e.g. Time: 9:20-10:00 am. You need to state the gender of the class members, that is, whether they are boys or girls; male or female.
After that, the source of the content of the day’s lesson should be written down. This is written as Reference Material. Just write out the title of the textbook or resource material from where you got your note.
Next comes the previous knowledge. This is just about the lesson from a previous class. Just write what the pupils learned in the previous class.
Write the behavioral objectives. This is a statement of what is expected of the pupils at the end of the class. What follows next is the content. This is the body of knowledge you want to impart to the pupils.
