How to Develop a One-Sentence Lesson Plan

Want a SIMPLE template for planning engaging lessons?

We tend to think great lessons take LOTS of time to plan. Time we don't have. 

So, either you spend hours scouring the web for the right videos, strategies, and activities OR you can learn the THREE simple elements that make up every great lesson right now, with Dr. Norman Eng's proprietary One-Sentence Lesson Plan (1SLP) training.

Sign up, and you'll get immediate access to the 23-minute video that thousands of professors and teachers use to outline their lessons in minutes. 

Absolutely no fluff or theory (even though this framework is 100% backed by learning science). Are you ready? 

What you’ll learn in this training:

How to quickly and efficiently plan lessons that students actually care about. 

The three most important questions that all great lessons answer. 

How to ensure that students learn what you want them to learn.

Why most lesson objectives fall short and what you can do to fix that.

How to keep your lessons focused, so that students will actually remember it.

How to open (and close!) your lessons so students are hooked from beginning to end.

The one-sentence lesson plan saved me.

It made me really define what the "to-be-remembered" information should be. It also made me think about activities that would reinforce learning and help students encode this information, so that they could later demonstrate their understanding.

What is this training about? what can I expect?

"Your One-Sentence Lesson Plan" is a 23-minute professional development training video that shows educators (particularly K-12 teachers and college instructors) how to effectively and efficiently plan engaging lessons to help students learn. Once you have it, you'll have a BIG PICTURE perspective of your lesson and an easy way to determine: Is my lesson focused, clear, and engaging? 

The time it takes to create your one-sentence lesson plan, of course, depends on you and the topic you teach. However, most teachers and faculty Dr. Eng have worked with spend about 5 to 10 minutes to create one. You may need more time. However, once you internalize the concept of the 1SLP—and practice developing it—your 1SLPs will become more useful, focused and transformative. Educators tend to see this effect the more they use it!

Note that the 1SLP is a high-level perspective of your lesson that can, in many cases, serve as the foundation to planning. You may still need to flesh out the details, particularly if you are used to developing full lesson plans. In that case, the 1SLP will not necessarily replace the traditional lesson plan. Think of the 1SLP as the "elevator pitch" for your lesson: It captures the essence of your lesson in a compelling way. 

Dr. Norman Eng has taught thousands of educators this very popular and proprietary framework, and this training was recorded from a prior workshop. 


Definitely! Because the one-sentence lesson plan is so popular, a lot of educators are already familiar with the framework. Yet many still have questions such as:

  • Can we have multiple one-sentence lesson plans?
  • Are lectures, videos, and readings part of the 1SLP?
  • How do you figure out your 'purpose'?
  • How do assessments fit into the 1SLP? 

This training answers these questions and more. You'll get an implementation worksheet (that walks you through the process, step-by-step), a checklist (to make sure you're creating the best possible 1SLP), and a full transcript that you can always refer back to. Add in the lifetime access and the 47% limited-time discount, and all of the sudden you have a robust program that goes beyond the simple framework you're already familiar with.

Can the 1SLP be applied virtually, in-person, and/or hybrid?

Yes, all of the above. You will see that the elements of a great lesson are the same, whether you teach online, in-person, or a combination. 

How much is the training? Can I buy IT for a group?

For individual purchases, the training is ONLY $79. Dr. Eng's premium courses typically cost hundreds of dollars—and thousands for institutions.  However, the 1SLP has become so popular that we want to open it up to as many educators as possible.
