Re: Lesson plans

Arjan, one technique I've seen done with a wide-ranging group of students is to divide the class. Have the lower ranking students work on their specific level techniques with a senior student and have the senior students work on more advanced material. Have the seniors take turns leading the juniors and then finish the class with all students combined to work on something appropriate for all. You will have to be on roller skates to keep track of everyone since they are training at the same time and you will have to move from junior to senior students and back to teach a technique and then supervise.
