    a written teaching plan goes something like this:
    • overview: a synopsis about what is going to be taught in the course
    • goal(s): the aim(s) or outcome(s) that you want your learner to achieve as a result of the lesson you plan
    • objectives: the more specific information that the learner will come away from the course knowing that will achieve the goal(s) you have determined.
    • content: a play-by-play of the specific content that is going to be taught and in the sequence it will happen. your content should address and cover all the objectives. this part of the written lesson plan is presented in an outline format.
    • procedures and materials: how all the above will be achieved, i.e. lecture, demonstration, discussion, etc. materials that can be used and resources that can be needed for the lesson to be successful and essential to teaching your lesson plan are listed and may include demonstrations, audio-visuals, handouts, experiments, stories, game playing and any number of other creative items.
    • evaluation: determining if you met the goals of the teaching plan. this can be done through a return demonstration, short post test, short question and return answer session with the client to verify they understand the information correctly or a task the participant needs to perform.
    if you look at it, it has some of the elements of a care plan (goals, interventions, execution and evaluation). what is different is that you actually lay out how a list of how you are going to do the teaching, kind of like a nursing procedure is laid out step-by-step for you.

    the specific subject your instructor is addressing sounds like it involves the kegel pelvic floor muscle exercises. if you do a google search you can find the instructions for these exercises on many websites on the internet.
