The Best Lesson You’ll Ever Teach is Tomorrow’s with BrainPOP’s New Insights Reports
It’s no secret that teachers work long days. Experts say that the best lessons require the same time to plan, at minimum, as they do to deliver. And yet, the average teacher is in front of students for six hours per day with less than an hour of time to prepare for all six hours.
Why does lesson preparation require this much time? One word: differentiation. Effective teachers know that it’s not enough to simply deliver a lesson. For students to learn, educators have to adjust their plans between every lesson, and to do this, they have to spend a tremendous amount of time analyzing data.
But with BrainPOP’s new Insights Reports, shaping tomorrow’s lessons has never been more time-efficient or more impactful. Deliver meaningful learning experiences to students, and get one step closer to going home on time with BrainPOP’s latest data tools.
