Lesson for teachers about how to use ChatGPT with students.

I asked ChatGPT to write a lesson plan on how teachers can use ChatGPT with students. Here it is.


  • Introduce teachers to the capabilities of ChatGPT and how it can be used in the classroom

  • Provide examples of ways to integrate ChatGPT into lesson plans


  • Access to a computer or device with internet connection

  • OpenAI API key

  • ChatGPT API documentation (available on OpenAI website)


  • Begin by explaining what ChatGPT is and how it works. ChatGPT is a large language model developed by OpenAI that can generate human-like text based on the input it is given.

  • Discuss the potential uses for ChatGPT in the classroom, such as:

    • Writing assistance for students who struggle with language or composition

    • Generating creative writing prompts

    • Summarizing and analyzing text

    • Translating text into different languages

Activity 1: Writing Assistance

  • Have students write a short paragraph on a topic of their choice.

  • Use ChatGPT to assist students in editing and revising their work by providing suggestions for grammar and sentence structure.

  • Have students discuss how ChatGPT's feedback helped improve their writing.

Activity 2: Creative Writing

  • Use ChatGPT to generate a creative writing prompt for the class.

  • Have students use the prompt to write a short story or poem.

  • Share and discuss the different stories and poems as a class.

Activity 3: Text Analysis

  • Have students select a passage from a book or article they are reading.

  • Use ChatGPT to summarize the passage and provide an analysis of the main ideas and themes.

  • Have students discuss how ChatGPT's analysis helped them understand the text better.


  • Review the different activities and discuss how ChatGPT can be integrated into other subject areas and lesson plans.

  • Remind teachers that ChatGPT is a powerful tool but it is not a replacement for human teachers, it should be used as an aid for students and teachers.
