When I was getting my Art Teacher's Certificate, I too was stumped by the
number and variety of lesson plan formats. During my student teaching, I
decided to stick with the best one I had found, making adjustments as I
needed. Keeping essentially the same format helps me a lot. While it isn't
perfect, I do feel comfortable with it because I know it well. When I write
a new lesson, I just open a template and fill it in!
This one is based on DBAE, although I don't always use the Objective format
I hope this helps,
