After the workshops correct designs increased to 49.3%, incorrect design 17.4% and lack of lesson plans decreased to 34.3% . correct application of action verbs before the workshops showed 51.5%which dropped to 31.7% after workshops.Conclusion: Lesson planning workshops have considerable effect on the level of cognitive domain (in terms of bloom's taxonomy) and also improve the abilities of staffs in appropriate design and format of lesson plans.
