Is this the norm for most teachers who have been teaching for a very long time? Just curious as I know of someone who does not write any lesson plans, other then the few times she had to, for administration. Also, when asked what the students will be learning in any subject for the weeks ahead, she will start saying I have no clue, all we get are teaching points and they are so vague. I know the school year has only began, but I have not seen any formal plans being taught by her other then a few independent writing exercises and math which is taught by her flipping through pages of the children's workbook and just writing examples from this. This could just be a warm up I'm assuming:unsure: So is teaching from the textbook and going along with that, is this how most teachers do it? I've also asked her certain questions pertaining to what the curriculum is, for say, social studies, and I will get the answer "I haven't taught that in so long so I don't know and all they give is a teaching point and it's too vague"
