Advice on planning effective transitions into lessons Transitions are crucial, possibly the most important moments in your lesson according to Trevor Wright, senior education lecturer at the University of Worcester.

Far more than just closing down or setting up the next task, he believes they are the moments when the learning in the lesson lives. Often lesson plans show large places for pupil activity, with lots of preparation activity going into the resources the teacher plans to use. But where is the teacher in the plan?

Trevor looks at how transitions can hold the lessons together – or cause them to collapse. He considers how transitions are the moments to define and evaluate, and offers practical advice on getting the balance right.
