Lesson Plans

Think of Lesson Plans as mini courses similar to what you would take in a classroom environment. Each lesson plan is designed to present a set of information that will get the 'student' to learn pocket billiards through a step by step instruction process. A lesson plan would comprise of a few progressive lessons aimed at providing just enough information that will allow the 'student' to understand a concept or two at a time. As the 'student' progresses through the lesson plans, a new and slightly more advanced concept(s) is taught and so on and so forth. Similar to a classroom environment, most of the articles will be followed by practical exercises that will help the 'student' gain more understanding of the game of pool and billiards by providing assignments that will have them use their newfound knowledge in actual practice. Some lessons plans will also have optional articles that serve as additional reading for the purpose of a deeper understanding of the concept being taught.
