I'm just wondering if you have gotten a teaching position without the degree. This is usually covered in a teacher ed program.

I'm sorry for the lack of quality in your education. Unfortunately, this is more and more common every day. I suspect that with everything being moved online now, this trend will continue to worsen.

The good news is that clearly, you already learned to advocate for yourself, as evidenced by your request for assistance about the other professor as well as the collaboration with your colleagues. You will need this skill in teaching more than any other.

Please do not be discouraged by the lack of support: this is very common. When you begin working as a teacher, you will need to continue to advocate for yourself and your colleagues. Finding receptive and kind co-workers will be key, but rest assured that there are plenty of great teachers who love to help out someone like you!

Hi Ali'a,

I do not have a teaching position yet, I haven't applied. I will do that this weekend.

I can only hope that the reason that we are being jam- packed with material with minimal time for guidance is that these courses are part of a Pre-Intern Teacher Candidacy Program and therefore fast and intense. Hopefully, we will get in depth LP material covered once we advance to Full Candidacy Status. I guess I am just looking for some guidance because that isn't being provided to me now in these courses.

Hi ih8,
Thank you for responding. Unfortunately, my professor did not provide us with a lesson plan guide. My cohorts and I have found ourselves just "winging it" and helping each other as much we can- which is minimal because we're all a bit frustrated with this course. We have addressed such concerns on past courses to a Director and at least one Professor will not be invited to return. But we are now again experiencing jam- packed material with minimal assistance from yet another professor.

My partner and I have been busy researching online and learning more through it (sadly).

I will follow your suggestion and once again reach out and ask my Professor specifically for a step by step guide on lesson planning. I can only hope.

This program offers the only way I can afford to obtain my teaching credential; intern teaching possibility and the scheduled courses are student friendly. The experience-so far- is just unfortunate. (story from another class when we asked for assistance for a lesson plan that had to include technology; The Professor said- "Oh, my last class didn't have a problem designing it and they only had two days to complete it, You guys are smart, you'll figure it out, I'll give you three days instead of two." Mind you, none of us had ever produced an LP before and told her that , That was our Final- zero guidance, she ended grading us harshly, she's the one not invited back to teach). I hope my other classes are better taught.

Ok, thank you for offering your assistance, I will PM you if I my professor doesn't provide me with a set of LP guidelines.

Hello and congratulations on this new step in your career.

My first wondering is: why doesn't your program offer a step by step lesson planning guide? I would think this is a very basic requirement.

If I were you, I would ask for that specifically from your professor. I know the professor is busy but it is literally his/her job to assist and teach you. If you feel that you missed it somewhere in the curriculum, I would ask the other students. If you get no answer, you didn't lose anything.

Lesson plan components vary greatly. For example, each school might have a simple lesson plan template while certain teaching preparation programs might have a very detailed one.

PM me if you still need help after trying to locate this resource from your teaching program.

Hi everyone,

I am taking courses to be a new intern teacher this coming fall. I am in need of assistance in developing lesson plans please. There is so much information that goes into lesson planning, specifically UDL and Differentiated Lessons.
From:
Picking a standard and unpacking it,
Designing a lesson objective that meets all the SMART criteria,
Gradual Release:
step-by-step instructional procedure (timing it)
Selecting Multiple means of Expressions, Representation and Engagement
Lesson Component and it's Differentiated Strategies
Objective for some, most and all
Formative and Summative Assessments

I am taking a fast pace virtual online course and with so many students and so much content to cover, our Professor has little to zero time for individualized help-we find ourselves figuring out most of the content on our own. I cannot ask my classmates as they are lost as well.

I am so overwhelmed by all of this and would like your assistance,
Can any of you guide please?
For example: How to design a learning objective step by step please,
and guidance on I do-We Do-You Do process: what would that look like please?
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
Do you know of any books that walk a new teacher step by step in designing a lesson plans from scratch plz?
(My subject matter is Spanish- I don't know if that matters or not)
I do not pretend to get free assistance, I am willing to pay you if you guide me through this process. I have no problem with that, I just want to learn so that I can provide my future students with learning experiences that tap into their higher learning thinking skills.
Thank you in advance.
(I have looked online for resources, but haven't found step by step assistance, some you tube videos are very general- but if you know of any good ones- please direct me to them, thank you.) Peace and Blessings to you.
(I didn't see a tab/board for Curriculum design, maybe my post should go elsewhere? plz advise?)
