The Lesson Planner provides incredible ease and power to meet teacher and administrative requirements for lesson development, review, curriculum alignment and teacher evaluation.
As we have done in all of our offerings Realtime brings the ease of a totally integrated system to lesson planning. The Lesson Planner includes powerful tools:
A suite of functions to develop daily and unit plans in individual, department or district defined formats.
Text boxes for each component of the plan so each section is saved to a database for easy retrieval and analysis.
It is not a simple word processor although it has full word processor functionality.
Pictures can be included and files can be attached to a lesson plan.
Assignments, graded or ungraded, can post automatically to the Grade Book and to the calendar and Grade Book section of both the Parent and StudentPortals.
Standards taught are tracked by the system throughout the year. Several views of the plan can be printed or even exported in a Word format. Plans can be viewed individually, by day, by section or by entire week in
subject or calendar format.
For schools with Master Schedules, the Lesson Planner automatically pre-fills courses and sections.
For Elementary Schools a calendar view allows subjects and activities to be dragged to the appropriate day and time frame.
Supervision can approve/disapprove individual lesson plans, or entire weeks of plans and attach appropriate comments or notes to each.
A huge benefit of Realtime is it consolidates SIS, Special Ed, GradeBook, Lesson Planner, Cafeteria Management and Emergency Calling service. All this is provided at large savings over all those separate components. We couldn't be happier.
