in terms of structure of a lesson

The most commonly used lesson format is the one in which you distinguish four lesson components:

The introduction 

The purpose of the introduction is to become 'warm' both physically and mentally. Physically to prevent injuries, mentally to get into the atmosphere of the lesson and put the daily worries aside for a while. You can achieve this by giving a simple driving assignment, so coordinating not too complicated. You can already draw attention to an aspect that you want to improve later or you can let an aspect from the previous lesson, which is now mastered, come back for a while if you continue with it later. You can also use the introduction to hand out the ribbons, to make some household announcements (this can also be done at the end), to tell something about today's lesson, but above all to chat with the students. In total, handing out the ribbons, collecting, ordering and driving in may not take longer than 10 minutes.

Basically, you try to teach the students how to skate. Most common is to divide the core into two parts: core A, and core B.

Core A 

use it to teach the students something new or to deepen an already known aspect. It is a lesson that focuses on 'learning' and 'practice'. It is also known as the 'learning part'. The type of command that fits well in this section is the exercise. The frequently used methods are: group practice, individual practice or pair practice.

You have time in core A for about three assignments in total 20 to 25 minutes. Keep your explanation short.

The purpose of core B is to repeat and incorporate an aspect that has already been passed as a teaching part (in the same lesson or in a previous lesson).

The lesson is devoted to 'continuous practice'. Different assignment types and different working methods are suitable for this. Depends on the purpose of this lesson.

In core B you have time for 2 or 3 assignments. In total that is 15 to 20 minutes.

By using two lesson cores, you can discuss two different lesson themes in a lesson. The advantage of such a division is that at the beginning of the lesson the students are still fresh and are better able to learn new movements, coordination is better. The disadvantage may be that you notice that one or two extra exercises/assignments can just drop the penny for the student. In such a case, continue for a while.

An experienced instructor will feel this point better than a novice instructor. If in doubt, you can always ask the students if they want to continue practicing.

The purpose of the slot is to reach a kind of climax in the structure of the lesson, or else to give space to finish calmly and answer a few more questions. In that case, there must have already been a climax at the end of core B. An important moment of the conclusion is the last time everyone gets together. That is the time to give your lesson a personal touch, make household announcements, collect ribbons and say goodbye to each other. This is the actual end of the lesson. An example of a final assignment could be to skate a number of 'ultimate laps' where they show everything learned today. This is also a good evaluation moment for you.

It should be possible to skate for 40 minutes in an hour of skating lesson at Duosport. There must be sufficient opportunity to improve the skating technique while there must also be room for socializing. Proper lesson layout and lesson preparation can help achieve this goal.

For a starting teacher it is important that you can use a specific organization within a lesson: a coat rack on which you can hang your lesson. An organizational form that provides clarity and on which you can always fall back.
