Make AI Generated Lessons GREAT

Spicy Apple Hot Take- AI Generated Lesson Plans are the Pumpkin Spice Latte of Teaching. 💅

Everyone loves them but they are basic.

Imagine you are sitting down for the first time with a chat bot because you have heard of all the wonderful things AI can do for teachers, like creating a lesson plan in seconds.

At first you are amazed at the speed but then you read it. way would I teach this to my kiddos.

Too many materials for which I would have to scavenge or create.
Not enough student engagement.
My students wouldn't find it interesting.

It's boring and basic.

But it doesn't have to be that way-- and you can still use the same lesson basic lesson to build something GREAT.

I gave a PD recently on how to build a lesson plan from the ground up with a group of lovely teachers. I selected a Lesson Plan Framework (5 E's) and I created a process to build LPs using AI.

But here is my honest reflection from that session and the process I created:

✖Sometimes AI makes a process tedious.
✖Sometimes AI takes a long time- too much time to get it "just right".
✖Sometimes we don't need AI to create the entire lesson, but rather provide inspiration or a rubric.

The process I created, while it worked, was long and time consuming.

And frankly, a little detached from the reality of a teacher sitting down and prepping for a class.

If I was feeling were my "students" feeling? I don't want to assume but I knew I needed to make changes to the session. (Teacher instinct, y'all).

So yesterday, I took a few hours to create a framework that works and is far more aligned with teachers needs and their reality.

It still had elements of the original process but far more simplified.

✔It works every time.
✔It streamlines the process.
✔It works for any lesson plan framework.
✔It allows for teacher creativity to be a part of the process.

And the lessons generated are not basic...they're GREAT!

(yes GREAT is an acronym cuz we love those in education 🙃 )
