The Madeline Hunter 7 Step Lesson Plan

The Madeline Hunter “seven step lesson plan.” The basic lesson plan outline given above contains the so-called “Hunter direct instruction lesson plan elements:” 1) objectives, 2) standards, 3) anticipatory set, 4) teaching [input, modeling, and check for understanding], 5) guided practice, 6) closure, and 7) independent practice. If you count input, modeling, and check for understanding as three steps, there are nine elements…not the seven in the usual title.
