How to Keep Your Sub Days From Being a Total Wash

During my semester as a sub before becoming a full-time teacher, I had many a days of little to no sub plans. I also had a good handful of days of detailed and thorough sub plans. Days with the full set of sub plans were far better both for me and for the students and I've sought to provide subs in my own classroom with the same direction.

In today's episode I discuss:

  • exactly the level of detail I put into my plans (I read out a section of my own plans)
  • how I format my plans so they're more readable and easier to reference
  • how I communicate with my students ahead of time in a way that the class could run even if a sub didn't show up (which has never happened but that's the ideal)
  • my emergency sub plans for days I am unexpectedly out
