As a teacher before you step out to the classroom for teaching, you need to prepare yourself adequately.

Adequate preparation towards the clamssroom is the first step to achieve the lesson objectives.

Teachers preparation towards the lesson delivery includes the following:

Preparation of scheme of work, A scheme of work defines the structure and content of an academic course. It splits an often-multi-year curriculum into deliverable units of work, each of a far shorter weeks' duration. Each unit of work is then analysed out into teachable individual topics of even shorter duration. The teaching syllabus is a guide for the teacher, at the beginning of the academic semester or a term teachers prepare their scheme of work, topics in the syllabus distributed for the number of weeks in the academic semester. The scheme of work direct the teacher the topics to be treated each week in the academic semester.

Lesson plan/ Lesson notes, the lesson plan state the objectives of the topic to be treated, and it also direct the teacher the teaching and learning activities to achieve the stated lesson objectives. The lesson plan also contains the Teaching and Learning Materials needed for the delivery of the content as well as the methodology of teaching. The lesson plan also direct the teacher on how to evaluate the students to determine whether the objectives has been achieved.

The content of the lesson should are stated in the core points of the lesson plan. This is where the teacher needs to do a lot of research to have control of the subject matter. A teacher who does not prepare before the class turn to disgrace himself in front of the students. The task specified for each teacher includes the preparation of lesson notes. 

If a teacher plan to use a demonstration method of teaching, the teacher is supposed to practice it and be sure it work before taking it to the class. A teacher who plan to use PowerPoint presentation in his class should test his/her projector and learn to set them up before taking it to the classroom else the teacher will found himself wanting in the classroom trying to set them up. Preparations before going to the class is very important and it promotes the teacher's confident level in the delivery of the lesson. 

Improvisation, improvisation is a key in education, some teaching and learning materials are not available in the school, a teacher is supposed to be creative and improvised for his students to have a feel of a real life situation. 

The lesson plan is important document in the school, in a situation whereby the teacher is absent any other teacher can step in and deliver the lesson with the plan.
