  1. Share a Lesson Bank

    My colleagues and I "divide and conquer " entire units and curriculum. If we could put these lessons in a central sharable bank it would be more efficient than only being able to share scheduled units.

    Good news, we’ve added a new method for sharing plans between teachers! You can now enter individual teacher emails, select specific classes or lesson banks, and set view or edit rules for each lesson section. When combined with our new Lesson Linking feature, you now have a much more effective way to enable teacher collaboration!

  2. Remove template from single lesson

    Just as we are able to cancel school days as an event, I would like to be able to cancel classes that are arranged as templates so that I can adapt to school assemblies, mandated testing schedules, and a myriad of other assemblies and events in the life of a school that make all of my classes go topsy turvy. As it is set up now, it is VERY CONFUSING to have to type "canceled" below a scheduled block of time/ subject heading then rewrite what I do have to do within a completely different timeframe, etc. Just take a…

    A single template can now hold information for all lesson sections, and can be applied to multiple classes across multiple school years! You can also schedule a single template for multiple days of the week, attach files to a template, and add or remove a template from individual lessons.

  3. Allow more items in lessons

    In addition to lesson and standards, I would need several other items in my lesson plan in order for me to use this. My administration requires the following in my lesson plan:
    1. Standard(s)
    2. Essential Question
    3. Daily Objective
    4. Bellwork
    5. Learning activities
    6. Assessment/Evaluation method
    7. Homework

    That said, I really, really like this website and would be 100% interested in using it if I could have access to all of the items that I needed. Thanks for creating this....its an amazingly wonderful tool!

  4. Change one event in series

    Adding a detail to just one event in ongoing events. I have daily recess as an event. It's everyday. I would like to add Recess Duty to just the days I have duty on the recess event.

  5. Add a collaboration option

    Our school recently purchased a school-wide license. As a classroom teacher I have other teachers coming into my room to support my instruction (ENL, special ed, Speech, Occupational Therapist, etc). It would be nice to be able add collaborators to my plans so that they may add/expand upon the plans to that I have made to better support a co-teaching model.

    To simplify the process of sharing lessons, we’ve added support for class collaboration. Multiple teachers (or a single teacher with multiple sections) can now “share” the lessons of a class. A change made by one teacher will automatically update the lesson for all teachers who share the class. To allow others to share your lessons, edit the class, and set Collaborate to “View Only” or “View/Edit”. To share the lessons from another teacher, edit your class, and set Collaborate to “Replica”. You’ll then be able to select a teacher and class to share the lessons.

  6. Split screen view of two year's lessons with copy feature

    It would be great if we could split the screen and see last year's plans and this year's plans side by side (ie. first week of school of each year). Then, to be able to copy lessons from one year to the next.

  7. Copy assignments to another class

    In much the same way as I can copy lessons from one year 7 class to another, I'd like to be able to copy assignments from one to the other.

  8. Anchor navigation bar at the top

    When working at the bottom of the page, after having added lengthy lessons during the first part of the day, I continuously have to scroll back up to the top to change to the next week. It would be helpful if the navigation/header bar was either anchored at the top of the screen at all times or if there was a duplicate toolbar at the bottom of the page.

    Just as there is the option to have a lesson plan template, it would be great to have a unit plan template as well.

  10. Allow collaboration on units

    The sharing and collaboration of unit plans would make this product more effective for the Secondary level. My team would like to be able to share and edit unit plans for more effective collaboration.

    Good news! We now support school lesson banks! This allows teachers to create and share banks/units for a grade/school/district. Permissions can be set to control who is able to view and edit the lessons. Hope that helps, any questions just let us know!

  11. allow templates to be added using cycles instead of M-F

    It seems I can only add a template using the M-F option. I would like to add a template for one day (Day 2, for example) of a cycle.

  12. Change background color of class

    While the coloured headings are helpful, it would be great to change the full background colour of the class block as well. I am a very visual person and I like seeing the full separation of each class. This is a feature of another online planbook that I used to use and it was great to have.

  14. Allow public and private events

    Have two Event options, Public and Private.

    "Public Events" would be school plays, assemblies, card markings, etc.

    "Private Events" would be teacher meetings, fire drills, etc.

  15. Default font per class

    I LOVE the idea of choosing fonts/colors/sizes for texts on the lesson plans. Is there a way to set a default PER class, so we don't have to spend the extra time highlighting and changing EVERY class, every day?? :) Thanks!!

  18. Copy classes

    I would like the ability to copy an existing template and class. Then I would rename it and use it again.

We hope you find this new option useful! Please do not hesitate to contact us at support@planbook.com with any questions. Thanks!

  19. copy certain lessons to the new year

    I would like to be able to go to last years lesson plans and have a button so that I can copy and paste that lesson to a specific date in the new year. As of today, all I can do is ,go to last years lesson, copy and go to the new year and paste it on the date that I need it. I want to start fresh each year, but would like to have this option available. I don't want to duplicate last year's lesson schedule onto the new year.

  20. Share entire day or week of lessons

    When our 4th grade plans together, we want 1 button sharing for the week's worth of plans. Right now you have to import each class. When we have 12 subjects a day (including recess/ lunch/ etc.), that is a lot of time!

    We have added support for class collaboration, to allow multiple teachers to share lessons for a class, so no need to import lessons. Hope that helps, any questions just let us know. Thanks!
