Thinking Inside the Block The Teacher's Day-Planner



Thinking Inside the Block The Teacher's Day-Planner by Pamela M. Robbins, Lynne E. Herndon

This guide grew out of two educators' desire to create a lesson planning book where everything a teacher needed was in one place, with flexibility to allow them to arrange pages as they saw fit. Collectively, these pages offer a comprehensive, flexible way of responding to the daily, monthly, and yearly challenges and opportunities of teaching, in a practical, time efficient manner.
