    Posted 01-23-2023 06:54 PM

    Have you ever found yourself struggling to come up with engaging lesson plans that align with state curriculum standards? ChatGPT-3, a powerful language generation AI model, can help! Here are some prompts you can use to create lesson plans that are tailored to your students' needs and meet the standards set by your state:

    1. "Write a lesson plan for teaching the concept of photosynthesis to 4th grade students, aligned with the state's science standards."
    2. "Create a lesson plan that teaches the concept of fractions to 5th grade students, aligned with the state's math standards."
    3. "Develop a lesson plan that teaches students about the civil rights movement, aligned with the state's social studies standards."

    Here's an example of a prompted lesson plan:

    Lesson Title: Photosynthesis in Action Grade Level: 4th Subject: Science State Standards: 4-LS1-1, 4-LS1-2

    Objective: Students will be able to explain the process of photosynthesis and its role in the ecosystem.


    • Chart paper and markers
    • Handouts on photosynthesis
    • Live plants or pictures of plants


    • Begin by showing students pictures of plants and asking them what they notice about the plants.
    • Introduce the concept of photosynthesis and explain that it is the process by which plants make their own food.

    Direct Instruction:

    • Using chart paper and markers, create a visual representation of the process of photosynthesis.
    • Have students take notes on the process and ask them to explain it in their own words.
    • Distribute handouts on photosynthesis and have students read and complete the accompanying questions.

    Guided Practice:

    • Divide students into small groups and provide each group with a live plant or pictures of plants.
    • Have students observe their plants and record any changes they notice over time.
    • Have groups share their observations and discuss how they relate to the process of photosynthesis.

    Independent Practice:

    • Have students complete a writing prompt where they explain the importance of photosynthesis in the ecosystem.


    • Review the process of photosynthesis with the students and ask them to explain how it relates to the ecosystem.


    • Assess students' understanding of the process of photosynthesis through a quiz or written test.
    • Evaluate students' observations and written responses to assess their understanding of the importance of photosynthesis in the ecosystem.

    By using ChatGPT-3 to generate prompts and lesson plans, you can save time and energy while still creating engaging and standards-aligned lessons for your students. Give it a try and see the difference it can make in your teaching practice!

    I'm happy to find this thread. I feel ChatGPT is a great tool to help get started with tasks. I believe that the tool alone does a mediocre job of providing general info, and it is up to the content matter experts to take its output to the next level. 

     I also would like to add that chatGPT is multilingual and could help WL teachers get started when creating instructional videos or materials. A prompt for resource development could be:

    "Act like a Spanish teacher. You will create __[video, song]____ about ___[topic]___. "

    If you would like a song, ask ChatGPT to include the song's tune.

    I have also found this tool helpful when drafting rubrics. Be sure to specify the standards and the format output: 

    "Create a rubric in a table format for an [assignment] about [topic]..."
