Lessons come from many places. They can be stolen, borrowed, or remembered. They can seem to come from nowhere, an inspiration, if you will, or they can be literally provided by a script written by educational publishers or for-profit testing companies. Lessons can be based on what was remembered when teachers themselves were students, or they can be based on what was learned in educational methods coursework. Frequently lessons planned in the first years come up in the desperate search for something that is simply “workable” or “doable” and that will keep students engaged and focused on some kind of meaningful learning activity.
