Isn’t lesson planning the easiest part of our job?
I have to be honest: I find lesson creation and planning fun. But I don’t always find that what I produce is effective. What’s the difference between effective planning and randomly hoping it all comes together and accomplishing something? That’s the topic Thomas Sauer, Amy Lenord, and I addressed with participants in our 3-hour workshop “The Best Laid Plans” yesterday at the Central States Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. Whether you were there or not, join the conversation here!
