A teacher planning planner for students books is officially out!
Teacher planner planner Emily Sorensen launched the planner last week, after she was awarded the title of 2017 Reader of the Year by the National Association of School Administrators (NASSA).
“It’s a very powerful tool, and it’s also a tool that has been incredibly challenging to build and develop, and has always been one of the most rewarding things to do for me,” Emily told News24.
“I’m really happy to have it released and it will be available for all of us to use in the future.”
“I’ve been working on it for a long time, and I’ve been so grateful to all the people who have supported me and supported the process,” Emily added.
The planner, which uses a computer algorithm to predict what books a child will be reading and what their grade level will be, is one of several books that have been released for the 2020-21 school year, which began on March 1.
“The plan will be used by teachers across all disciplines, including secondary, primary and tertiary schools,” Emily said.
“And I’m really excited that it’s finally here and that it has been so successful so far.”
Emily, a teacher and creative strategist, has spent the past year working with the NASSA to develop the plan, which she says she hopes will help teachers make more accurate predictions about the future of their students.
“It is a really good tool that helps teachers and students plan,” Emily explained.
“Teachers use it for everything from setting up classroom and classroom resources to creating the school calendar, and even planning for how the school year will change.”
“It helps them to think ahead to how their pupils are going to be learning and learning at different stages in the school term.”
Emily’s new planner comes in three different versions, which are available for free download and are suitable for any grade level.
“The different versions of the planner allow teachers to build different types of learning plans that are tailored to their classroom and students’ needs,” Emily says.
“For example, you can choose a student planner that includes information about their grade levels, so that teachers can plan how to teach them in different ways, or you can create a planner for a particular age group.
You can also create a teacher planner that is tailored to the needs of a particular teacher.”
Emily says that by combining different versions and working with different teachers, the plan can be tailored to each teacher’s needs.
“You don’t have to choose the same things as a teacher because you can tailor your plan to what they need,” Emily explains.
“There are so many different things you can do with the plan that it really makes a huge difference in what you can plan for.”
Emily also explains that her planner can be used for teaching students in a variety of contexts, from a group project to a class discussion.
“We all love to have a plan that has a teacher in it, but I think we have all been taught to be too busy to plan it properly,” Emily adds.
Emily hopes that by sharing her new planner, other teachers will use it to make better decisions for themselves.
“As teachers, we want to be able to make sure that we are always using the best tools to prepare our students for the future,” Emily concludes.
Teachers can download the planner from Emily’s website.
