Like most teachers, you probably spend more time planning and preparing for class than teaching. Between lesson planning, grading, and dealing with administrative duties, it's easy to feel like you're always playing catch-up.

Here are Microsoft Teams tricks for teachers that can help you maximize your classroom time.
Simplify Lesson Planning
As a teacher, you know that lesson planning can be a time-consuming process. You want to ensure that each lesson is engaging and aligned with your curriculum goals. Teachers spend an average of seven hours per week searching for resources. Beedle Planning can help you save time by providing a go-to lesson plan solution within Microsoft Teams.
Beedle Planning makes it easy for you to save and archive your lessons, so you can quickly create new lessons in a fraction of the time. You can easily organize and copy your classes and lessons from class to class and year to year. This way, you'll have more time to focus on what's important: teaching your students!
Improve Your Classroom Workflow
Beedle Planning can help you improve your workflow in several ways:
- Create templates. With templates for commonly used documents like lesson plans, you can quickly create new documents without starting from scratch. You can also easily find and use templates that you've made before.
- Manage assignments. Beedle Planning integrates with Microsoft Assignments, so you can manage assignments and share resources with students directly in Teams. This integration makes it easy to track who is and isn't turning in their work.
- Share resources. Save your resources, notes, and instructional materials in one place so you can access them anytime, anywhere. Beedle Planning also makes it easy to share resources with your students and colleagues.
Reuse Your Learning Resources
You spend a great deal of time creating new lesson plans and assignments every year. But what if there were a way to avoid all that work? With Beedle, you can reuse old assignments and lesson plans so you can save time and effort when creating new ones.
You probably have a few go-to assignments and lesson plans that you use yearly. Beedle Planning makes it easy for you to find and reuse these old favorites. Create a template for an assignment or lesson plan, and you can easily access it anytime you need it.
With Beedle, lesson plans can be copied and pasted into one or more teams, and the duplicate plans can include all linked assignments and objectives. Teachers can also de-select Assignments and Objectives when copying a plan, so they only copy the lesson plan. Then, they can easily share it with other classes and link it to the class calendar.
