Now that you are all saying . . . what? At my school, we have to submit lessons plans by Thursday at 4:00 pm for the upcoming week. There is a specific format that needs to be followed--the biggest contention being the learning intention and success criteria. For example: "The student will analyze The Color Purple, focusing on characterization and theme and will write an analytical essay to be graded on a ________ rubric as proficient or better." So, basically, what are they doing, and how do they know they are successful. We must have one of these for every activity we do in class. Annoying, but doable. I write them. I submit my plans each week, as requested. So, yesterday, I am called into a meeting to discuss my lesson plans. According to my P, my plans are too repetitive. And I quote - "I don't believe you do the same thing every day." She implied that I am being lazy since I am using the same statements every week. She also said, "I know you didn't do them like this last year. I have them. I can look." So, yes, I do use some of the same statements every week, but I do alter them--I will change the book title if we have switched books, I will change the success criteria if its different--but yes, they are generally the same. Because I do the same thing every day. My typical day in my class (I teach AP/Dual Enrollment English) 1) Warmup - either proofreading or figurative language (every other day) 2) Discussion of homework - a non-fiction essay in the theme or essay style that we're focusing on, either online or in open forum 3) Grammar or writing practice 4) Writing assignment, generally connecting homework with something read earlier in the week or even the unit. Sometimes individual, sometimes group 5) Vocabulary work 6) Homework: Non-fiction essay and a dialectical journal and outside reading novel with reading journal The only exception to this is the end of a unit when we do a Socratic Seminar and a test or project. Of course, when I do these, my statements reflect this. In terms of my lesson plans not "looking like this last year" - I went back and looked--and they do. The only real difference between this year and last year is A) some of the literature is different) and B) the format of how they want them submitted is different. It seems she wants lesson plans that reflect what she thinks I should be doing, as opposed to what I am actually doing. Not quite sure how to write lesson plans that reflect my classroom differently than what is actually going on. Especially since I don't actually use them--I write them because my admin wants them. My lesson plan is my syllabus--I look at the syllabus and go from there. My class is very routine--Vocab quizzes every two weeks, all warmups are created and dated for the entire year, most things I've taught before have online folders with all my materials prepared, due dates for novels and tests are set at the beginning of each quarter. I've been doing this a long time! Sorry for the long post. Any suggestions?
