How I Fell In Love With Lesson Planning Music Education by Joel Wagner - June 20, 2016June 20, 20160 "I got your lesson plans right here, buddy!" You know the drill, spendÂ hours creating a lesson plan weeks ahead of the class that you don't even stick to because the studentsÂ fell behind last week Â and now you're playing catch upÂ trying to make magic happen. I know.Â OrÂ an administrator drops by expecting to see your lesson plan binder at the front of the classroom or the state-mandated objectives listen on the board, orÂ whateverÂ newÂ wild scheme the wind has blown in this year. Or maybe I'm the only one who has spent one industrious teacher work day in AprilÂ writing lesson plans for the entire year because I didn't do them. Or simply turned in an empty lesson plan binder at the end of another school year.
