This article and the accompanying worksheets are based on a workshop I gave to a group of teachers who were about to finish their four-week initial teaching course, and were somewhat panicked by the prospect of teaching 25 hours a week- as it took them every waking hour to prepare their 4 weekly lessons during the course. If you missed out on such a workshop, this article could well be for you (wherever you are in your teaching career). If your time management is good, you can use this as a format to pass your skills onto your stressed-looking colleagues!
Think about time.
