    Unhappy Problems-anticipated

    I've been asked to submit a 45 min. lesson plan as a condition to my certification. One of the areas I need to discuss are the "anticipated problems" that will arise!?
    If I thought that these areas would be a problem wouldn't I have changed the content/presentation/set-up to alleviate them? (If I have this clairvoyant
    ability, how come I didn't see this post being written.)
    I'm not sure what "they" are looking for?.......humility?

    I think you're reading too much into the word "anticipated" (that is, too little). Some people use it to 'mean' (although perhaps that's too strong a word) "expected"; when they do, it does (I suppose - though I wish they wouldn't) .

    When you anticipate something you both expect it and and do something that will either avoid it or handle it in some way; that's what your planned lesson does. What the examiners want to see is that you can see in advance problems that may arise, and that your plans will avoid those potential problems.
