Comments: Chalk has updated my method of lesson and unit planning, making my work more accessible and flexible.

Pros: Chalk makes it easy for me to plan my units and daily lessons, with the ability to shift them forward and backward, schedule days off, and save and reuse units between class years. I find it very helpful that I can open my plans on any smart device. Its moved me away from using paper plans or multiple Word documents to track my plans.

Cons: A feature that would be helpful would be the ability bulk export individual plans as group or individual PDFs, aside from that, the potential of this software is so great that as a teacher, I recommend it to my peers and as a department chair, require my teachers to use it for their plans.

Storing, Sharing, and reusing lessons is a breeze.

Pros: Once I store a lesson here, it is there for future years, can be edited, and reused. Furthermore, as teachers on one team, we can enter our lessons here and share them, so that they are visible and can be used by all. This especially helps if you need to give a teacher access that works with small group pullouts, etc.

Cons: Within our district, there were several screens, and we would either forget to save before moving forward, or the information wouldn't take. We never could figure out why. This did make the entry feel cumbersome. Perhaps a one-screen versus tab option would be great, and instant saving every minute or so would be helpful to teachers.

Once set-up, the lesson plans are easy to use!

Comments: It is easy-to-use, and makes lesson-planning much simpler!

Pros: I have only used the Lesson Planning software from Chalk.com, and I find it very beneficial and easy to use. The initial set-up took some time, but that is expected, as I entered my class times, quarters, etc. I use it daily, with the plans up on my computer, and the printed off version in my plan book. It is easy to customize and change. You can can easily make units, and upload other lessons and pictures to each plan. It makes lesson planning a lot easier! Next year, as I will be teaching the same grade-level, I should be able to transfer over a lot of lessons. :)

Cons: As I said, the initial set-up is time consuming, but the steps are easy-to-follow. Customer Service will aid you when you have difficulties.

Great Lesson Plan Book for Teachers!

Comments: This is a great tool to use as a teacher!

Pros: I love this program! I can easily see the weeks plans or even the whole month. I can set up the school year myself!

Cons: I would like it to be easier to share with a substitute for when I am out of the classroom.

I love using Chalk.com. I use it to do my planning. It is linked to the Canadian curriculum.

Pros: I love that it is linked to the Ontario Curriculum. I use it to plan and keep track of which expectations I have covered.

Cons: I found it hard to get started. This year I am teaching SERR, found it a bit tricky to track the various levels I teach.
