Big question from Ryann, one of the first, in Washington state, to have strong successes with the Invisibles at the high school level:
Hi Ben and Tina,
My ADD brain is struggling and I am feeling burnt out. I feel like there are too many options, too many possibilities, and I REALLY need some kind of structure. I need some kind of template that I can follow to stay on track during the day and over the course of a week. I am spending way too much time lesson planning and coming in early and staying late at work and I am feeling grumpy and overwhelmed. I get hyper focused on the details and have a hard time stepping back and looking at the big picture.
Is there a structure that you can recommend for lesson planning? I know you have the suggested daily schedule on your website and a suggested weekly one, too, and I am looking for a more updated version of that using what we all have been working on over the last year or so with NT input. I would love to have some kind of template for the day and for the week where I can just plug in different reading options, writing options, etc… I’m sure someone or several people in the PLC have developed something like that. Any ideas?
Thank you so much!
