    1. What is syllabus?

A syllabus a requisite document for teaching in that it serves to outline the basic elements of a course including what topics will be covered, a weekly schedule, and a list of tests, assignments, and their associated weightings. However, a syllabus has the power to do more than that, it can articulate connections between learning outcomes, assessments, content, and pedagogical practice – that is, the way in which the course is constructively aligned – in guiding students through their learning. We consider the syllabus here due to the way in which this document serves as a communication piece of both the practical details and the overall alignment of your course.

The development of a course syllabus is an integral part of an instructor's overall pedagogy and an opportunity to share your excitement and passion about teaching and learning. Your syllabus is provides students with a comprehensive overview of the course's aims and objectives, learning outcomes, and assessment strategies. In many ways, the course syllabus functions as text itself for each course. Because of this, much care must be taken in developing a syllabus that communicates all aspects of a course to students.

Different institutions have different standards and resources to guide syllabus development. Some institutions communicate particular standards they expect all syllabi of the institution to contain; some institutions also provide templates for assisting their educators to develop such standardized documents. It would therefore be advantageous for you to check with your institution for such standards and resources. However, in absence of institution-specific assistance or in compliment to what your institution can provide you, this syllabus checklist document offers a list of the common elements considered essential in putting together a syllabus.
A syllabus is a lesson-by-lesson guide of your class so you can show students, administrators, and colleagues what you plan to teach in a marking period.

A syllabus details important information that fits into an overarching curriculum, which describes a class in general terms.

Together, a curriculum and a syllabus account for all of the topics you plan to teach, the resources you’ll use to teach them, and the individual lessons that support each topic.

As a result, it’s easy for teachers — especially first-year teachers — to feel overwhelmed at the prospect of creating a syllabus from scratch.

It’s also a challenge for teachers who aren’t naturally detail-oriented!  

  1. What is curriculum?

The term curriculum refers to the lessons and academic content taught in a school or in a specific course or program. In dictionariescurriculum is often defined as the courses offered by a school, but it is rarely used in such a general sense in schools. Depending on how broadly educators define or employ the term, curriculum typically refers to the knowledge and skills students are expected to learn, which includes the learning standardsor learning objectives they are expected to meet; the units and lessons that teachers teach; the assignments and projects given to students; the books, materials, videos, presentations, and readings used in a course; and the tests, assessments, and other methods used to evaluate student learning. An individual teacher’s curriculum, for example, would be the specific learning standards, lessons, assignments, and materials used to organize and teach a particular course.

In many cases, teachers develop their own curricula, often refining and improving them over years, although it is also common for teachers to adapt lessons and syllabi created by other teachers, use curriculum templates and guides to structure their lessons and courses, or purchase prepackaged curricula from individuals and companies. In some cases, schools purchase comprehensive, multigrade curriculum packages—often in a particular subject area, such as mathematics—that teachers are required to use or follow. Curriculum may also encompass a school’s academic requirements for graduation, such as the courses students have to take and pass, the number of credits students must complete, and other requirements, such as completing a capstone project or a certain number of community-service hours. Generally speaking, curriculum takes many different forms in schools—too many to comprehensively catalog here.

It is important to note that while curriculum encompasses a wide variety of potential educational and instructional practices, educators often have a very precise, technical meaning in mind when they use the term. Most teachers spend a lot of time thinking about, studying, discussing, and analyzing curriculum, and many educators have acquired a specialist’s expertise in curriculum development—i.e., they know how to structure, organize, and deliver lessons  in ways that facilitate or accelerate student learning. To noneducators, some curriculum materials may seem simple or straightforward (such as a list of required reading, for example), but they may reflect a deep and sophisticated understanding of an academic discipline and of the most effective strategies for learning acquisition and classroom management.

A curriculum can mean a lot of different things to different people involved in education. The standard definition is a collection of lessons, assessments, and other academic content that’s taught in a school, program, or class by a teacher.

Teachers may also use the term “curriculum” to refer to the actual information they teach throughout a class.

For example, a teacher may say, “This paper shows the curriculum for my introduction to health science course.”

Teachers may also search the Internet or ask their colleagues for “more curriculum,” which means the teacher is looking for more resources to use in a classroom setting. 

For example, a teacher may ask, “Where can I get more curriculum to fill my Microsoft class?”

Finally, a school, institution, or district can refer to their standards or class sequence as “curriculum.”

For example, an administrator may declare, “Our career readiness curriculum includes the newest and most cutting-edge skills that employers require in new hires.”

  1. What is lesson plan?

lesson plan is a teacher's detailed description of the course of instruction or "learning trajectory" for a lesson. A daily lesson plan is developed by a teacher to guide class learning. Details will vary depending on the preference of the teacher, subject being covered, and the needs of the students. There may be requirements mandated by the schoolsystem regarding the plan. A lesson plan is the teacher's guide for running a particular lesson, and it includes the goal (what the students are supposed to learn), how the goal will be reached (the method, procedure) and a way of measuring how well the goal was reached (test, worksheethomework etc.).

A lesson plan is a teacher’s daily guide for what students need to learn, how it will be taught, and how learning will be measured.

Lesson plans help teachers be more effective in the classroom by providing a detailed outline to follow each class period.

This ensures every bit of class time is spent teaching new concepts and having meaningful discussions — not figuring it out on the fly!

The most effective lesson plans have six key parts:

  1. Lesson Objectives

  2. Related Requirements

  3. Lesson Materials

  4. Lesson Procedure

  5. Assessment Method

  6. Lesson Reflection

Because each part of a lesson plan plays a role in the learning experience of your students, it’s important to approach them with a clear plan in mind.

A lesson plan is the instructor’s road map of what students need to learn and how it will be done effectively during the class time. Then, you can design appropriate learning activities and develop strategies to obtain feedback on student learning. Having a carefully constructed lesson plan for each 3-hour lesson allows you to enter the classroom with more confidence and maximizes your chance of having a meaningful learning experience with your students.

Lesson planning is a significant element of teaching-learning system. A lesson plan is a step-by-step guide that provides a structure for an essential learning. Before planning a lesson, it is essential to classify the learning outcomes for the class. It is important because it helps the teacher in maintaining a standard teaching pattern and does not let the class deviate from the topic. Pre-planning helps the teacher to be better equipped in answering questions asked by the students during the lecture. An effective lesson plan has three basic components; aims and objectives of the course, teaching and learning activities and, assessments to check student understanding of the topic.
