Posts Tagged ‘Lesson Plans’
I’m almost never out sick. This is a good thing because my emergency lesson plans are, well, they kind of suck. It’s motivation to come to work. The few times I’m out, I either have the sub put on Mythbusters, or I email in a lesson based on our current work.
I would really like to have some better, stand alone emergency plans, but all I’ve come up with is Einstein’s Puzzle. It’s a logic puzzle that takes quite a bit of thinking and time to solve. I give extra credit for getting it right (Einstein puzzle). Just guessing isn’t enough, they have to show that they did the work or they don’t get the extra credit.
I need something else. Maybe I’ll design some review worksheets of conversions or scientific notation, or maybe an SAT II section on Physics. I’m going into my 4th year teaching these courses and that’s the best I’ve been able to do.
I need help. Or an intervention. What do you do?
Cherilyn from Colorado told me about a site of lesson plans and lots of downloadable materials authored by Deborah Carder of Arkansas. Cherilyn has been using this site as a guide for her first year of teaching physics. I can see why, it’s loaded with great ideas. Deborah has the entire year mapped out from the first to last day of school. Included as downloadable files are worksheets, lab files and Powerpoint files.
I plan on downloading every single file and going through it with the intent to steal it all. Before you think poorly of me, Deborah gave me permission to use as much as I like on this site. I’m an honest thief, I will certainly credit her for all of her hard work.
Thanks to Cherilyn and Deborah.
