Tell that fool to stop acting crazy... I need atleast 2 weeks and even then I wont be done with an entire semesters lesson plans!!! Tell her its impossible!!!


Copy, paste. If she wants them all now, she doesn't care about quality, she just need to file them with the principal.


Are you in middle school? This is pretty common for middle school. I also hope you have a book.

By "lesson plan" they normally mean an outline. Just make a really basic outline and fill it out super-basically. Like this:

Lesson 1 "Name" Date ____
Title: "Lesson title"
Purpose: (check the book, for example "to teach students past tense")
- point 1
- point 2
- point 3 (from the book)
- speaking game

Like, literally, just open the book and copy student directions from it.
Don't go crazy and write a lot. If they have anything to say about this, tell them that you've done a reasonable amount of work for the time frame.

I'm assuming this is just to be filed somewhere and not something you'll have to stick to religiously. Perhaps a rough rendition of the lesson plans at the start of all the teacher's guide books would suffice? They usually break down what you're expected to do in each period.

I was asked the same thing last week but just for my 1st and 2nd grade classes - I'm not the type to make detailed lesson plans anyway, but in the end a simple table just showing the topic I planned to teach each week was enough. In my case they needed to submit something to the local education office and didn't really care whether I actually followed the plan or not - perhaps your situation is similar?

Here is the lesson plan template that i was given when i first started. Its easy-peasy.
Just do the minimal effort first.. like another poster suggested, they are not after quality but quantity for the superiors.

I had exactly the same situation when I started (but I also had to create a text book with those lesson plans). I don't think they want a detailed description, powerpoint, handouts etc. now. Just the title of each lesson and the basics of what it'll cover(1 or 2 sentences should be sufficient).

And then, also which resources you will need (mine was always, computer, powerpoint program, paper and pencils etc) I'm sure you can find a lesson plan template on here somewhere and just fill in what you have planned for every individual lesson.

It is unreasonable to ask for fully detailed lesson plans all at once.

Just give a general course outline. Base it on the textbook. Just say the general topic/chapter and any rough ideas you may have.
E.g. Week 6
Learning aims: practice using the future progressive tense
Lesson: Textbook pg 55-56. Powerpoint explaining the tense. Group activity to help students practice

Week 7. Continue with the future tense
Textbook pg7
Jeopardy review game.

You can always make individual and more detailed lesson plans later. As well as make changes.

Seconded.

I had to do the same thing, I just copied down the headings out of the book and listed the activities underneath. No learning objectives, no materials, just a list. It was mostly for showing the administration that I did something over our week-long spring break.


We were told they wanted ours for the year even though we may not be here.
What they actually wanted was a kind of summery of each lesson we were going to teach and what the students will hopefully learn. We don't have to stick to the plan so we copied out the chapter names and goal for each lesson from the textbooks and used other books for our free classes. So clarify what they need.

This.


Way to go, private cowboy. You're well on your way to knowing how to play the game of teaching English at a public school and winning at it.
