I finally made the transition from paper lesson plans to digital and this template is how I did it. I will NEVER go back to paper! Why use this template?
- Copy and paste Common Core Standards
- Easily visualize the balance of homework to Reading/Writing classwork
- Instantly locate the current week using Google's awesome Table of Contents and Outline features
- Use Hyperlinks to instantly locate your resources in your Google Drive. This is a bit of a time investment the first year, but the result is that your lesson plans are done for years to come.
- Share the Doc with academic coaches, administrators, or colleagues. This is perfect for those administrators who want to see lesson plans in advance.
- Run out of time to get an activity done? No problem. Just cut and paste it into the next week.
- Have an idea for next year? Make a comment for yourself in the margin to go back to when you have time.
- Have your entire quarter at a glance...no more pacing problems.
- No paper plans to lug around and potentially get lost or ruined (darn coffee!)
I could go on and on! I love planning in this format and I think you will too.
NOTE: I have been receiving emails asking for access to the Doc. YOU MUST MAKE YOUR OWN COPY! If I granted sharing access, your plans would be public for the whole world to see because you would be editing the master template. :-) If you're not sure how to make a copy of a Google Doc, please check out this free guide.
Note: You will need a Google account to access and edit this Doc!
