Please offer advice and suggestions, many of the parts are essential to the way my literacy/numeracy coordinator want it to be set up. I would love to see other examples and get advice. Thanks.

What grade level do you teach?

That is a lot of work each week. I am surprise your plans are so detailed. I thought my lesson plans were crazy and very busy, but they are nothing compared to what you have shared.

I teach grade prep (5 and 6 yr olds) in Australia. I love proteacher and just wanted to hear what others thought. Yes this is a weekly planner, its so much work. It takes about 30min to an hour to complete. Its ridiculous. Would love time saving ideas. Thanks.

You know I have a hard time staying on topic.

I am very impressed with the planners. There is no criticism intended, however they strike me as the ultimate in professional "busy" work. I know that planning makes for a strong instructional program. Believe me, I know this. But anything that requires this much detail is overkill.

At one faculty meeting I asked our chief administrator to explain the pedagogical foundation for our lesson plans. Why did we have to do it in the manner he had outlined for us? He hemmed and hawed and finally said that it gave him access...he could monitor what was going on in the classroom through our plans.

Well, I decided to see if he really looked at our weekly plans. (I suspected he gave them to the clerk to file without even looking at them.) I copied about 9 copies of one week's lessons and just changed the dates. I handed in those babies for about nine weeks. He never noticed.

Not only do I plan weekly, but I am up at 4:00 every morning planning my day. I take planning seriously, but I think most of the stuff the admins think they want from us is cockamamie foolishness.

I sincerely hope I have not stepped on any toes. If I sounded disrespectful please understand that was not my post's intent.

Hi biyubelle I totally agree with u. They are professional busy work and a waste of precious planning time. But thats what the admin wants so had to do it. Im glad others feel the same. I just thought that its getting ridiculous because I dont use half the data thats in them. Argh admin!!! I think it comes back to them worrying about covering them selves legally. Thanks for your post biyubelle.

I did a similar thing where it was exactly the same except tiny parts for months. It all has to do with tracking the teachers. Just because it is written down doesn't mean it is done.

I agree Earth Monkey just because it is written down its not necessarily taught. As teachers we are always changing and adapting our planners. If we change it in anyway we have to write that on the planner, date and sign it. Its beyond a joke. Earth monkey I would love to see your month to month planner. Thanks for your post.

My plans dont even come close. I pencil in something like, read pages blah blah or write response to literature and the standard. There is nothing that detailed at all. Plans are all pretty much in my head, as they are with all professional educators. Kids change lessons, so I would not be that detailed. I am sorry your admin makes you do that.

I guess I have NOTHING to complain about! I have lesson plan book...I write down what we are doing. At this point we don't even have to write down the standard we are addressing. Personally, I don't see the need as we have already gone through our curriculum and aligned our standards w/ the state standards, so whatever we teach is hitting the standards! So I can write read story "X" chorally, respond or worksheet "X"......never thought I was so lucky!

We must put the standards(which I sometimes forget to do), materials, procedure and evaluation for each lesson. We also have to do them electronically because we have to post them on the schools server for the principal to check.

I agree with another poster. It's a waste of valuable teaching time to spend so much time on overkill of lesson plans. I'm glad I don't work at your school. I doubt very much anyone even takes the time to analyze them.

I have always felt that my plan book is for me - not for admin. It is to help me organize my teaching not so that they can come in and check up on me. As far as I'm concerned, they should be able to walk in to my room & know with in minutes what standard I am teaching, my objective & my evaluation element. The "busy work" we are given takes time away from the actual planning & orgainizing of our lessons & classroom!!!

(picture me now hopping off my soap box)

Gosh, looking at what some of you need to do for lessons plans makes me feel lucky! I have a plan book and I write pretty basic stuff - page and question numbers, that sort of thing. My principal has never asked to see my plan book. Sometimes during an evaluation he might flip through to see that it is up to date, but he never takes time to actually read it.

How in the world do you get such detailed plans in that little time!!? Wow! I'm impressed.

It takes me well over an hour to do my plans for the week and they aren't anything near as detailed as yours!

but I hand-write in the information... it's just easier for me to do it that way.

Luckily, we don't have to turn plans in or anything. They just have to be available for our principal to look at at any time.

Here's a sample of one week's Math- I attach any worksheets but I don't have most of these on computer. I'm always tweaking my proforma trying to accomodate all the changing-and expanding- requirements!

I also do 2 detailed literacy plans ( Reading & Writing) and a general planner that covers Integrated Studies, You can Do It , Specials etc

This has been so interesting for me, I can't believe how different all our plans look and the variance in detail. Makes me realise that like I thought my school expects a lot.

Unfortunately our admin is to particular. If we spell a word wrong on the program they makes us change it, if we refer to students as children or kids we have to change it. Its ridiculous, we have to have an electronic version always on the school server and also one always on our tables. We hand them up every 4 weeks. Its like handing up an essay. Thanks everyone for attaching your lesson plans, I have got alot of ideas from them.

Christina, I love your color coded plan!
Old 04-26-2008, 04:17 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #28

I am always impressed when I see your attachments and website. It looks like you have your kids for quite a while longer than we do in CA. Do your kids not get recess? How many instructional minutes do you have each day? It looks like you have enough time to cover your subjects. If I remember right, you teach either 2 or 3.

My plan looks very similar, but the color coding really makes it clear! I also pencil mine in and nobody asks for it! We will be getting a new Admin next year after 14 years of the same one who understands the job of a teacher and who does not make unreasonable demands. Hopefully we won't be swinging to the ridiculous ends that luv2teachinoz has had to prepare!

luv2teachinoz, I am sorry for the unnecessary workload that your admin puts on you. You might want to look around your district for options.

Does anyone know how to convert the word documents? So many of the ideas shared here are in Word, but I still have Works. I would be happy to upgrade to Word but I am quite illiterate about technology and don't have a clue what to do. Any advice is appreciated.
