A New Look at Planning

In past years, I found myself paying scant attention to the valuable resources contained in our county curricula. Using smart resources, I learned how easy, valuable and efficient it was to plan lessons relying on smart software and my curriculum. In doing so, I can be certain that guiding questions and the common core standards are addressed in each lesson.

Essential Questions to be addressed:

  • How can one design a lesson template using smart resources that ensures county curriculum goals and common core standards are addressed in each lesson.
  • In what ways can one become less text and more content focused?
  • How does focusing a lesson on answering essential questions save the time and energy of the teacher?
