Lighthouse Pedagogy’s Circular Teacher Day Planner is an intuitive daily agenda for secondary school teachers which aids in day-to-day lesson planning and scheduling. This printable resource facilitates daily planning whilst catering to the needs of secondary school teachers in both British and International schools.
Contemporary agendas and planners represent time in a linear fashion using rigid systems of grids to arrange tasks and commitments. The Circular Day Planner looks to the cyclical representations of time found in Mayan calendars to facilitate routine and daily rhythm.
The day of a Secondary School teacher is naturally segmented into blocks of lessons - the circular shape of the Day Planner echoes the face of a clock with lessons and free periods being identified intuitively.
How can Circular Planning help?
Placing events in a circular shape is a more natural approach which helps to reveal patterns and the spatial relationships between lessons and free periods/preparation time. The school day is presented as a cyclical routine mirroring the annual, weekly and daily cycles we experience in schools. These principles are utilised in Waldorf education where the passing of the days, months and seasons is noticed and rhythm is emphasised in order to provide grounding and context. This grounding can reduce stress and improve wellbeing.
