Teachers Need to Plan Lessons... Do they?

One of the most dreaded and disliked aspects in our profession could be lesson planning. 
I think I have never come across a teacher who expressed her / his love for it. 
This acknowledged, we also need to agree on its importance, how it shapes our time inside the class, defines whether we´ll achieve our goals and objectives; it can even explain how tired we feel at the end of the day!   

Lesson planning is not just choosing activities and giving it an order. It has to do with making wise decisions about strategies we will employ to help students learn. The more we have this clear before we go into our class, the more effective the teaching and most important: the learning will be.
