When it comes to their craft, teachers trust one another most. In a 2014 survey distributed by the Education Week Research Center, 87 percent of teacher respondents indicated that they trust other teachers’ claims of whether curriculum is aligned with the Common Core. In sharp contrast, a mere 38 percent said they trust curriculum providers’ and publishers’ claims; and fewer than two-thirds report that they trust an independent panel of experts.
This is why Daybreak Lesson Plans lets teachers — the real-life experts — develop lesson plans for other teachers’ substitutes. We understand that people who have the hands-on experience, who have tried curriculum on real students and discovered real results, are the ones who can effectively lead the way toward enriched curriculum planning.

Why Choose Daybreak Lesson Plans?
Daybreak Lesson Plans strives to make it as easy as possible for you to have a quick and straightforward lesson plan for your substitute teacher so you can take a sick day or attend an off-site training event.
