This has never happened at any of the schools I have taught at. Sounds like a lot of extra work!

No. I’ve taught 26 years and have never had to turn in my lesson plans. If an administrator comes in for an evaluation, we have to have our plans on our desk for them to quickly look at. They may come back later, if necessary, to look at our plans more in detail.

We had a new AP one year who required us to turn in lesson plans every week and made comments on them. That lasted about 2 weeks. He realized he had released the kraken, so to speak! Hah.

Been there too. And we a
Had to make copies of the worksheets or assignments that went with each lesson too.

My mom had to do this at her elementary school in South Carolina. I’ve worked at two elementary schools in Maryland and one in Georgia and in all three lesson plans were only required for formal observations.

That makes more sense. I too have to have my lesson plans posted each Monday... but, I do that at the beginning of each marking period and NEVER look at them again!

At the first school I taught at, no. At the school I taught at this year, yes. Not only was I required to turn in weekly lesson plans, but our principal wanted every lesson to be framed as an "I can" statement using the language we planned to use when we taught the lesson. So I couldn't just give the objective, I had to carefully phrase it. It was so time-consuming!

Yes, lesson plans are due each week. We use the COPE format (content, objective, procedure, evaluation)

We are actually required to submit our lessons for the coming week before leaving every Friday. All the schools in my district are re required to to do this by the state and is supposedly used to make sure we're teaching all the standards. Things got a little better this year, last year we had to use a very confusing template but this year the district got us Planbook. Com memberships which are much more convenient. The weekly requirement is still annoying though

I have been teaching in my district over 20 years and we have always had to turn in lesson plans by Monday morning. With new administration last year it kind of faded away but I believe it is still required .

Every Thursday night for the following week!

In my opinion, formal lesson plans are such a waste of time.

After 18 years, I lost my art room to a classroom this year in order to spread out kids due to Covit19. They said we can’t hand out papers.. kinda thinking art is remote for all.

One class will be spread out two rooms.Aday teacher in one room, I help in other room. B day teachers switch 😳😷☹️.. I know I’m lucky to have a job but.

I’m a SPED teacher, & my principals ALWAYS seem to visit my room as soon as I give my student(s) a break from their work or when they’ve finished early everything I had planned. They RARELY come in when I’m actually in the middle of making progress on a lesson. It makes me feel like I have to be defensive & justify why the students aren’t working. Does this happen to anyone else?

Ok. I am teaching music in person and when we have a case of COVID in the school, I push into the classroom for 10 days. Are there music websites that are free that I can go to for quick lessons when I’m asked to teach in the classroom. I was told today with 5 minutes to prepare that we had a case, I couldn’t teach in my room and I couldn’t do the ukulele unit I had planned. I had to think on the fly and quickly came up with a BrainPop for them. I’d like to find a few more music sites.

Thoughts on the drive to Santa Fe/Taos? I know the flights are quick, but my kids really want to go on a road trip and have been asking to take ski lessons so I figure it would cover both.

Just had my yearly summative. Every year I am told what an amazing teacher I am. And every year I am told my personality needs work. All because I work instead of socialize during my plan time. My personality won't change -I am who I am- and people who actually take the time to understand me end up enjoying my company. Just wondering if these principals think they will convert a focused, goal-oriented introvert into an extrovert just to fit their idea of what an educator should be.
