Does anyone have to do all their lesson plans like this?

We just got an email from our principal that she wants all lessons done like this. Think I will be looking for a job at semester...

Our principal wants us to do those things and know how to write a plan like that but doesn't expect us to write that for every lesson. We have to write one as a team for practice but not weekly. Our lesson plans can be short and simple as long as we show in our teaching that we can do those things. For model we can use a page number or for assessment put simply verbal response or graphic organizer. For active processing we can put, turn and talk.

I can't imagine your P making you do all that for each lesson!

No - ours are pretty much done however we want them done - as long as we say what we're teaching. We're a STAR school, so thankfully our principal figures if we can make that type of success for 3 years in a row, we must be doing something right! She just came to us last year.

If your P reads carefully, it says the LESSON needs to have all those components - not the LESSON PLAN. Hopefully he/she understands that if you're spending valuable time writing up such a lesson plan then that leaves you little time to figure out specific interventions for kids, differentiated instruction, etc...

We have to write objective, standard,assessment, lesson, enabling outcomes, and homework. Luckily they're not too long! However, in my old school we did have to do something very similar. Since I was on a team with 3 other teachers we each took a subject (or two depending on subject), and then shared our plans with each other. It made for less paperwork for each teacher and worked very well.

Wow, your principal must be about as old as me! I just retired and this is how we were told to do lesson plans in 1979!. Madeline Hunter was very popular then. We did not have to do every lesson that way, but that was the plan that was emphasized. Good luck!

I have been talking to other teachers tonight.. we are thinking about taking our Reading TE to her and telling her to do an example lesson plan for us.. maybe she can see how much time it's gonna take. I just want to turn my keys in and walk away...

Not every one our lessons have to be written up, but when formal lesson plans are requested, we are required to use Hunter's model. Truthfully, there has been no other greater imporovement to lesson planning since Hunter cmae out with her model. It is still accepted as the "best" way to lesson plan.

I'm just a student teacher, so that is the model I have to use to write each and every lesson I teach. For my cooperating teacher, they only have to have the standard and the main teaching points . They must do the hunter lesson plan for their formal evaluation though.

We follow Madeline Hunter. We are allowed to do standards/objectives for the week in each subject, but we still need opening/procedure/closing/homework for each day.

I believe it is a huge waste of time!!

About 8 years ago, we had to do similar lesson plans at my school, and they were graded weekly by our P. I still have terrible memories of this time at my school. We have since switched to a tier lesson plan format, and this year, we have been told that we will have a new format. Lots of luck to you. Don't get discouraged. This too will pass!

Ugh!!! We have a new principal this year and thank God we just need objectives and procedures included in our plans, just the basics! I attach my homework calendar, but it's not necessary! Best of luck to you!!!

There is no way I would be doing that!!!! Are you a teacher or a secretary??? That will take hours to do for every subject every day of the week.
