My school is located in the Colorado mountains, typical fall morning temperatures range between 20 and 40 degrees, afternoon usually brings thunderstorms. In the winter months snow and more snow, then in the spring temperatures are similar to fall. Thus I teach 90% of the time indoors.
I post the question, learning target and a basic plan on the white board in the gym each day. I find that this keeps my lesson focused. I have also noticed that since posting the learning target and question my teaching is more purposeful.
Because the lesson plans may not include every detail of information, you are likely to have clarifying questions!
