I was education for a short time. I am an engineer. I spent 17 years with the US space program, switched to education, teaching chemistry, physics, and engineering, for 3 years, before coming back to engineering. However, I am still very involved with STEM initiatives in the community and my own children’s schooling.
Your planning will come down to your school, district, and/or state requirements. I taught 2 years in a private school in Texas. My lessons plans were turned in weekly, but they were in a very brief table format. the administrator just wanted known the general direction of the week in case parents called, or students had missed class. However, I taught in a public school for a year in Tennessee. While the school didn’t require the lesson plans to be turned in on a regular basis, you were required by the state to turn in a detailed lesson plans on the day you had a surprise evaluation. I used Excel and/or Word for the lesson plans.
The private school I taught in used the Google Education Suite for its backbone, but used WhippleHill (now BlackBaud) as the LMS. (As an aside the only LMS worse than WhippleHill is Blackboard.) I therefore used the Google suite quite a bit. I also used iWork quite a bit since the students and teachers all had MacBook Airs issued to them, thank goodness!
My students loved Kahoot! for fun quiz games for unit reviews and final exam preparation. They loved the competitive nature of the site/program, and it got pretty heated sometimes.
I used Quizizz.com to create tests and quizzes. It allows you to create multiple choice, short answer, true/false questions, which is nice. What I like about Quizizz the most is the ability to randomize both the question order and the answer order (with multiple choice questions.) This was very handy since my students sat pretty close together at their computer workstations (public school). It was harder to copy one another even in the close quarters.
