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).
