If you need to create a plan because it is a requirement for substitute teaching jobs in the school districts you would to like to apply to, you are probably wondering what type of information goes into a good substitute teacher plan. This can vary from teacher to teacher, but there are some elements that you will find in almost every comprehensive substitute teacher plan. These include lesson plans that can be adjusted for different grade levels and subjects, substitute teaching tips on how to effectively manage a classroom, fun learning games to increase interaction and discipline plans for difficult students.
Fine Tune your Plan for Your Environment
If you substitute teach at the same school often, there are other school-specific items that you can add to your substitute teacher plan to make it even more effective. You can add in a daily schedule for each grade level. You can add in rules and regulations for the school and for the specific teacher’s classroom. You can include a map of the inside of the school so you know how to easily get from the classroom to the lunchroom or teacher’s lounge. You can also ask for a list of students that would be the best to rely on as helpers throughout the day.
Once you have a solid substitute teacher plan, you can use it not only guarantee success in the classroom, but also as a tool to get other substitute jobs. Sometimes school districts will make these plans a requirement for substitute teaching and ask that you submit one with your substitute teacher resume. But, even if a substitute teacher plan is not a requirement for substitute teaching, you should submit one with your substitute teacher resume anyway. By including a substitute teacher plan with every application, you can demonstrate your level of experience and commitment to being a great substitute teacher.
