Before the start of the new school year, it is important for returning teachers to update their planners to match their new schedules. This step is vital to making sure you are creating lesson plans in the planner for the courses you are teaching for the current school year.
When you change your schedule, you are not losing your lesson plans. These are not going away! Changing your schedule is only to help you access a planner that matches the courses you are teaching for the year.
The Forethought Lesson Planner allows you to setup as many schedules as you need. Each schedule contains course entries and special entries, such as notes, planning period information, or sub notes. Your lesson planner can be changed to fit any changes in your year’s schedule.
Editing Your Schedule
- Select Change My Settings
- Select My Schedules
- Select your schedule and then click Edit Schedule.
If you want to create an entirely new schedule, it might be best to click Remove Schedule to remove last year's schedule and then Add a Schedule.
*Note: Removing last year’s schedule does not erase or modify information from last year.
- Edit the name of your schedule on this screen as needed and then click Next.
- Select one of your entries and then use the buttons on the right for the option you want to complete: Edit Entry, Move Up, Move Down, or Remove Entry.
- Repeat as needed for the number of entries in your schedule.
If you are teaching a NEW COURSE, you will need to click "Add an Entry" to add this course to your planner schedule.
If you are not teaching a PREVIOUS COURSE, you will need to click "Remove Entry" to remove the entry from your schedule. Remember: removing an entry from your schedule does NOT erase or modify information already in your planner.
- Edit the name of the entry. Best practice is to include times or period numbers to help organize the entries.
For Aware Customers Only
Select the course from your Master Schedule to connect test data of students to your entries in Forethought. You can select multiple classes to connect to an entry. For example, if you teach three preps of math, check all the math classes that use that course’s curriculum. This will allow teachers access to the TEST tab from Aware to create and manage teacher tests.
