Lesson Plan Lingo

This past week in my IT 486 class, we discussed the creation of lesson plans. I realize that these are important to class organization for teachers, but some things are just overdone. I feel that the outline we were given asked for some things a few times too many, and other things didn't feel like they had a place. I believe that every teacher needs to have their own lesson plan outline that fits their style and can easily be adjusted based on subject or grade level. Despite the problems I felt our outline had, I did find that having the skeleton saved to a word processor with links to state standard lists and other useful information is a good idea that I might use in the future. I just wish that our state and school administrations were more often concerned with helping our students learn, instead of tests and making teachers come up with sometimes pointless technical lingo.
