Planning question Good morning. I have been teaching high school foreign language for almost two years (so I still feel a little insecure about some things, such as the question I am about to pose). Is it acceptable for a teacher to plan the same type of activities throughout a semester? For instance, I teach vocabulary the same way for all the 7 chapters that I teach in a semester. I also teach grammar the same way. However, I try to do different activities that break from the routine once a chapter. At our school district, we have the same classes every day for the semester. We get a new schedule for the second semester. What it boils down to is that I am afraid of student boredom... but like I said, I try to counter this by planning different activities from time to time. I think that it is difficult since we see each other every day (I used to work in a school system that had an alternating schedule). Thanks for your input!
