Overwhelmed at School?

Glory to God

Today has been a bit rough.  Well moving is rough, getting a new job–rough, and just changing is rough.  Do you ever just get overwhelmed by it all, and feel that God is far away (or worse that you are drifting from Him).  Well God is faithful and I found this devotional in my inbox today.  For all those that need a little encouragement click through http://contentz.mkt4731.com/mson/2013/08/07/io8x2CPqOaeg/index.html

Lesson Planning Checklist

Lesson Planning as a First-Year Teacher

I like curriculum; I like researching, designing, dreaming, thinking about (embarrassing I know) curriculum.  I don’t like actually writing it down as a newbie.  I’ve been searching the web for simple, quick guides and haven’t been able to find a stellar one.  I’m the type of person who loves the “big picture” of things, but not the nitty gritty details.  I have scores of unfinished knitting projects, books, reading plans, exercise routines, etc..  I need help to become disciplined and stay on task.  I think that I will have to develop my own helps, unless I find something nice online.

I pulled out my old intro to teaching textbook and found a great list of classroom management tips that are relevant to lesson planning/assessment.  I think I’ll develop my own set of checklists for planning.  What do you all think?  Do you have a great resource, or tips for a newbie?  Please share in the comments.  You can also check out my Diigo group “Lesson Plan Mania” for some of what I’ve dug up on the interwebs (link on sidebar).
