Lesson Plans

Here are instructions for setting up a table template in forethought for your lesson plans. I feel if each teacher has the same info in your lesson plans we can begin to help in developing proficent plans.

* To do so they will need to go to the first day they do not have lesson plans inserted (a non-bold date on their calendar) and create the table. They will then click on the wrench icon in the subject header (light blue area) and choose "Set as Default Text for Entry". This will set the table as the new template for that class. They can then copy it and add it to their other classes and set it as the default for each class. See picture below. Let me know if you have any questions.
