After watching my co-workers, I'm thinking that I believed a common misconception for too long. I believed that lesson planning tapered off to a minimum after a few years of teaching the same subject. I now know that this is false with one caveat. Good teachers who strive to motivate their students do not recycle lesson plans over and over again. Now that I'm using TAP methods for lesson planning, I'm spending tons of time on my plans, largely on formatting and filling in all the little common sense sections of the rubric I use. Take-home work and lesson planning, I guess we best become close friends in the next 50 years before I can retire.
