This lesson planning template was developed and used for my own teaching team and is the result of years of tweaking to optimize planning and learning outcomes. That being said, this template works well for my team, but may require adjustments to fit your instructional style. The template is easily editable and offers endless customization opportunities. The basic format is intended for secondary English curriculum, but will work with any curriculum with minor adjustments. I hope this product provides a useful platform for your short term and long term planning, and that it gives you ideas about how to structure your own planning templates!
