A Panther Paws Production Plans should reflect and have written all major subject activities. If you are doing Writing, Science, Social Studies, Math, LA, Reading, handwriting, etc as a course of study….make sure it is in the plan. example – 2 hr reading block, nothing about Science is in the plans, but when I walk through science book is out, students are reading Chapter 8 in round robin format. Science should be cited during that block in the plans.
A Panther Paws Production Plans should have: A system to identify and correlate the SSS to your lessons and assessments. Show where you have taught and tested which standards. This “system” needs to be simple yet accomplishes the intention of the law. Can you show where a benchmark has been taught or tested when asked, within a reasonable amount of time? Every Teacher must be able to demonstrate this. One system can be documented, but all must be able to do it. My recommendation is to work backwards, go thru each benchmark as a checklist and cite the chapter and or activity that will cover this benchmark. When asked, you will see it was covered in unit 4 and unit 4 was taught on this date and tested on this date as documented in your plans….this is just one idea, you may develop a better system.
A Panther Paws Production Plans should Be completed for the week and available on Monday when the workday begins. Be available for review when walk-throughs are being done. Be used by the teacher as a guideline for that day’s instruction.
A Panther Paws Production Plans should be: Developed as a team and consistent among the grade levels. Individual members may be designated to develop specific parts of the plan, but the curriculum, activities and assessments are used and evaluated by all on the team. Each year, this “team approach” to planning will help us to fine tune and develop the most effective work for our students. Common planning is a time for sharing and developing ideas. The concept of “working on the work” is to find the most meaningful activities structured in such a way as to enhance the learning time. Remember, teaching is not just presenting information. It’s not what you teach, it’s what do they learn that is important! The correct questions, the most effective strategies and the best activities are the key! Four or Five heads working together will design the best product!
We are a great school with a great TEAM! It takes all of us to make a difference! The 4 Pantherteers
