Example lessons for remote teaching

Lesson plans shared by schools to help teachers adapt their practice for remote education if required.

Applies to England



In autumn 2020, the Department for Education (DfE) worked with schools to understand how they were adapting their teaching practice for remote education in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Schools shared a range of lesson plans annotated with tips and ideas they had found useful when teaching remotely.

The purpose of the lesson plans is to help teachers consider how they might adapt their teaching practice for the remote context, should remote education prove necessary for whole classes or individual students in the future.

The examples are intended as a source of ideas, not as teaching resources or lessons the department expects schools to teach. They do not reflect departmental endorsement of any particular approach to remote teaching.
