Teacher planner is a record of daily teaching planning. The teacher should develop the process page by carrying out the activities given in the teacher text and text book with the aim of achieving learning outcomes. However, these activities should be done in a flexible manner, adopting techniques suitable for the students of her class. The process page should contain planning that includes assessment along with learning activities. Information obtained through continuous assessment should also be included on the feedback page.
