Table of Contents | About the Author
Designing and implementing daily lesson plans can be among the most frustrating and time-consuming aspects of teaching—a tedious exercise that places artificial restrictions on student creativity and engagement with learning.
In this game-changing book, author and instructional coach Michael Fisher shows teachers how they can free themselves from rigid and ineffective busywork by replacing lesson plans with learning journeys that are guided by the students’ abilities, interests, and skill levels rather than by pre-selected checklists of day-to-day benchmarks.
Loaded with tips, strategies, and detailed real-life examples, Ditch the Daily Lesson Plan is the perfect guide to crafting student-centered learning experiences at all levels and across the content areas.
