on lesson plans...

 I despise lesson plans (did not want to use the word 'hate', though it applies!!)  Thankfully my school does not require them.  I started out making plans and by late Tue or early Wed the week's plan was shot, for one reason or another.  The metaphor that comes to mind is the skipper of a sailboat, I want to go from point A to point B and in that trip the wind shifts constantly causing tacks into and with the wind, so I get to B but the path is different each day and even in each class doing the same material. Inquiry is another shift in the wind's direction blowing to different compass points and in different forces from each student and in that, constantly changing the direction of the boat.
