Also, are there primers out there on curriculum development? That’s always a challenge for me. I have a hard time seeing the year as a whole when I try to plan individual days.
There must be, right? As college professors we’ve only had to plan one subject for one semester at a time. We could give general tips but there must be books out there, right?
The stuff for college professors tends to focus on activities, or the first day of class, or how to get students involved with creating the course.
Teach Like a Champion, which you should get if you’re teaching just because it’s great and full of tips, only has one short chapter on the big picture (Chapter 2). What it says on the topic is good, but it doesn’t say very much. Obviously there are entire classes on how to make lesson plans in teaching colleges, so there’s got to be more out there. But we don’t know what is wheat and what is chaff.
Grumpy readers, help us out! Any suggestions on books for Leah?
