The audio-visual approach used in pedagogy, closely associated with a lock-step view of teaching in the seventies, has undergone a revolution in recent years. By way of examining how teachers can script a body of pedagogic sequences, or lessons, the different phases of the lesson planning process and how a more innovative audio-visual approach can facilitate this process are examined. First, different learning styles as perceived by learners themselves are outlined. Second, an overview of the different pedagogic approaches available to teachers is proposed. Third, the different phases of creating a lesson script are described based on a scenistic approach. Finally, two types of lesson scripts are outlined to demonstrate how one can take into account apparently contradictory teaching methods.
