Hello! I just landed a new job for next year teaching high school French (and possibly ELD, fingers still crossed!) in a traditional public high school after three years teaching for an online charter. It has been an interesting experience and I have learned a lot, but I am also looking forward to having a physical classroom again! One of the (many!) things I know I can do better than I did in my last traditional classroom is in planning ahead for instruction. Having learned from past mistakes and now going into a new school with a new curriculum, I want to plan ahead as much as possible so I don't end up behind later on. Can you please share your approach or any tips for how to jump in and start planning for a semester ahead of time? To add some detail on my particular situation and the challenges it will entail, I will have mixed-level classes (French 1/2 and 2/3) as well as a rotating block schedule (three 50-minute periods and one 120-minute period per week, per class). I have taught in both kinds of arrangements before and am even more aware of the need for careful planning! Any suggestions on how to begin would be much appreciated!
