Planner brings together your curriculum, Star data on your student achievement, and high-quality instructional resources to help you develop Lesson Plans for your classroom.  Using your selected learning progression, Planner saves you time by making every step in the lesson planning process easier.

An Overview: How Planner Works

This is a very broad overview of how Planner works. For specific instructions on using features of the program, refer to the help links (either on the right side of the page or at the bottom, depending on the width of your screen).

Planner is aligned to your curriculum's pacing guides and state standards, so that you can choose learning objectives for your students consistent with your instructional approach.

Viewing the Tour

When you first come to the Selecting Skills to Teach page, you will see a brief slideshow of Planner in a pop-up window. Use the Back and Next controls at the bottom to change slides; on the final slide, select Got it! to end the slideshow.

After you have viewed all the slides at least once, a Dismiss link will appear at the bottom of the slideshow; select the link to skip the slideshow in the future. (You can view the slideshow again by selecting the next to the pace line.)
