I started CAT Planning Support because as a teacher of over 28 years I have seen teacher workload grow enormously. The rise of technology has created a demand for slides and sheets that equates (roughly) to 1 hour of planning and preparation to 1 hour of teaching. This is clearly unsustainable. Of course, there are other planning support sites and I have used them. However, the issue I find is that they are often expensive, difficult to adapt (if pdf) and full of logos that are annoying to remove. My other issue is that they often ignore researched based best practise such as using cluttered slides, little AFL, breaking down learning into steps, etc.
I hope that I can create something to help my fellow teachers. However, I am relying on teachers letting me know what is helpful and what is not. Please drop me a line with suggestions for improvement - just because they work with my class doesnt mean they will work for yours! Contact form on the next page.
