7 Qualities to Maximize the Impact of Your Lesson Plans is an edited version of a chapter in my book, Helping Students Motivate Themselves.

Eye On Education, the publisher of that book and its upcoming sequel, Self-Driven Learning have published it on their blog, along with a nice, and useful, infographic.

In addition to be an always helpful reminder for all my own lesson-planning, I have students read the chapter prior to preparing their own lessons that they teach to the classmates.
