In this lesson there are some key articles that will help you optimize your lesson planning, as well as track your standards in order to make sure that you're touching on all of the expectations you wish to teach this semester or school year!
- Lesson plans can be more organized with the use of lesson templates. This article will help you create templates in order to optimize your lesson planning and ensure that you're covering all of the content you need, as well as keep your lessons aligned with one another throughout your Semester.
- Sometimes you will only want to use a template for a single lesson, not the entire subject's semester. This article will guide you on how to add a template to a single lesson plan.
- Assigning standards to a lesson plan allows you to ensure that your lesson plan is aligned with the standard that you're focused on for that day. It also goes towards tracking your standards to ensure that you've covered your curriculum by the end of the semester.
Note: While Chalk calls them Standards, you may have a different word for them in your district. Common terms are Curriculum Expectations, Learning Objectives, Competencies, Expected Outcomes, etc.
- This article will allow you to track your standards progress throughout the semester. This takes the standards that you've attached to your lesson plans (via the previous article above) and allows you to see an overview of the entire Standard set or Curriculum set to ensure that the right material is being covered.
Note: Keep in mind there are a ton of resources in the Planboard FAQ to help you become more comfortable with using the platform to lesson plan!
