This article discusses the importance of teacher planning to enhance effective teaching. Proper planning provides the teacher with a progressive, structured and well organized framework that can lead students toward the accomplishment of specified goals or objectives. A planning model consists of four steps. A teacher should determine specific objectives for students, select activities that conform to those objectives, organized activities so as to achieve optimum learning and select evaluation methods that will be able to gauge the responses to the first three steps. The results of the study confirm that good planning is a cornerstone of the process of learning and teaching.
