Preparation and Lesson Planning
Rochelle Smalls and Harrison Parker

Good teachers know that in order to have a successful class they must have a well-prepared lesson plan. Public Achievement is no different, and all good Public Achievement coaches know that lesson plans will lead to successful sessions. Do not be worried about coming up with fun, educational and interesting activities to coach your Public Achievement group, as there are tons of resources available to assist you. When it comes to activities, remember the following phrase: “You don’t have to reinvent the wheel!”  Another important piece of advice is to always have a contingency plan! Plans B and C will come in handy!
