Hello! I will be leaving during the middle of next week for maternity leave and will be out the rest of the year. I teach tenth grade World Civilization and AP U.S. History. For my AP classes, I already have everything planned and copied for the rest of the year. For World Civilization, I have the first three weeks planned. By planned, I mean every minute of the schedule is outlined. I was lucky enough to have a one day orientation with my sub where she was able to observe my teaching style and the overall procedures of my classroom. She taught history at the local middle school last year and she seems like a great teacher. Here is my question for those of you who have completed long term sub assignments (especially in Social Studies): Did the teacher leave detailed lesson plans for all six weeks of maternity leave or did he/she leave a few weeks worth and then an outline of what should be covered each day? I have already prepared a detailed schedule and she took a textbook to look over during the next week. Would it be out of the ordinary to let her plan the lessons over the last two weeks or so? If you could answer my question and give me any other advice about planning for the substitute, I would really appreciate it! ThankS!
