... do you think it has a positive/negative/neutral effect on your teaching? I'm just curious, I've worked for two principals and neither has required lesson plans. I don't write my plans down, but I have a really casual weekly schedule (ie: "math-carrying," etc.) and my curriculum map for the year. It strikes me as being a lot of extra work on both ends, but I'm just assuming. So, for those of you who do it, what do you think of it?
