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.

Note: It’s important to mention that OpenAI’s API requires an API key, to use it in your activities you should check with your school’s IT department or the OpenAI website for more information on how to acquire an API key.
