I'm a first year teacher for finance and business high school classes. Because of covid, I wasn't able to shadow any other teachers and see how they taught during my training. I have a few questions about day-to-day lessons. My courses are very content heavy, and each day will probably be 15 to 20 minutes of lecture and then activity to fill in the rest of the class period. My classes will be 45 minutes each. What is the typical schedule in your class? My other question is, while you are lecturing do you give the students any visuals? Like a powerpoint or something that they can look at? Or do you just get up and talk to them while they take notes and then they can look at visuals in their book later? Right now I am making a powerpoint for every lecture and it is a lot of prep work, and I wasn't sure if that's what other teachers typically do or not so I wanted to get some other opinions. I'm a visual learner so I feel like I would want something to look at, but it's also been a long time since I've been in high school so I'm not sure if that is something that teachers do or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
