Frontpage Forums Future Teachers Planning Time Reply To: Planning Time


As a young college student and future educator, I am glad that I have stumbled upon this topic. I guess I can only hope that I will have time to plan during the day.
Amcastle, how long do you have to stay after school for lesson planning? Do you usually get out at a certain time? I like how you arrive early to prepare for your day. This is an idea I plan to try.

Many educators have told me that it will get easier and less time-consuming as you go. Though I am sure this is true for the first few years, it seems that I can expect to have more and more duties added to my plate as I go. With this in mind, I do expect that I will have to bring work home with me. How do I use my time wisely? What are some good tools or sources to use as an aid to help my planning? Any wise words for me as I approach student teaching and my first year of teaching?
