I'm not sure if there's a similar thread, but I figured I'd start one anyway. Long story short, my 2nd week of teaching and I had to take off 2 days. Thursday I provided regular lesson plans detailed out. I had all my copies done and everything. I was only planning on being out this day, so I didn't bother with plans for Friday. Then my doctor told me I had to take off Friday as well, but not having time to do plans and copies, I just told the school to use my emergency plans which were left for me by the previous teacher whom I replaced. These plans are pretty much packets and worksheets aka BUSY WORK for the students to do all day. So, as a sub...do you prefer the teacher to leave you Detailed Lesson Plans or Sub Work (like Busy Work) that doesn't require much direct teaching? I divided the poll into schools/grades because it probably varies.
