Lesson planning is the activity which the teacher performs before the actual lesson takes place. A lesson plan is a detailed description of the instructional strategies and learning activities to be performed during the teaching/learning process.
Planning lessons ahead of time means teachers enter the classroom each day fully prepared to teach new concepts and lead meaningful discussions – instead of figuring things out as they go. Without a lesson plan, students can quickly lose focus and teachers may be left scrambling, thinking of what to do next.

Collaborative planning can be done by both the teachers and students in their classrooms.
When the educators are doing collaborative planning, it involves a grade level team and instructional facilitator working and learning together as they plan curriculum, units, or lessons including classroom-based assessments by analysing standards and creating “Essential Questions.”
A collaborative (or cooperative) learning approach also involves students working together on activities or learning tasks in a group small enough to ensure that everyone participates. Students in the group may work on separate tasks contributing to a common overall outcome, or work together on a shared task.
