Today is a quick and easy make-and-take idea for your next teacher inservice. Have your teams create “DO NOT DISTURB. We are planning!” signs for their classroom doors.
Teachers have so little time to plan as it is so we have to make sure that the time they DO have is sacred and protected. After you make the signs, promise your fellow teachers you will honor them and keep away from others who are engaged in the important work of designing lessons, creating adaptations, and solving problems.
