Secondary English program lesson plans, for example, usually center around four topics. They are literary theme, elements of language and compositon, literary history, and literary genre. A board, thematic lesson plan is preferable, because it allows a teacher to create various research, writing, speaking, and reading assignments. It helps an instructor teach different literature genres and incorporate videotapes, films, and television programs. Also, it facilitates teaching literature and English together. Similarlly, lesson plans focus on content, analytic thinking, scaffolding, and the practicality of lesson structure and meeting of educational goals.
