Ep 129: Approaching Your Curriculum With a System, Not Just Lessons

Does your lesson planning ever feel frantic, rushed, or disorganized? Do you ever feel like you’re trying to “hit” standards in your classroom, but your students aren’t really grasping them? Listen as Jessica and Caitlin discuss how to plan with a system, so you can lesson plan more quickly and help students meet the standards in a more effective way. 

In this episode, Caitlin and Jessica discuss the system they used in their own classrooms, which will help you quickly plan lessons that spiral students’ learning, so they are practicing concepts multiple times and really remembering them. 

Additionally, Caitlin and Jessica will discuss how you can spiral content, not just standards, using the “rinse and repeat” method to save time and energy in your planning and your classroom. Take a listen if you’re ready to make your planning more effective, starting today!
