Pros: Chalk makes it easy for me to plan my units and daily lessons, with the ability to shift them forward and backward, schedule days off, and save and reuse units between class years. I find it very helpful that I can open my plans on any smart device. Its moved me away from using paper plans or multiple Word documents to track my plans.

Cons: A feature that would be helpful would be the ability bulk export individual plans as group or individual PDFs, aside from that, the potential of this software is so great that as a teacher, I recommend it to my peers and as a department chair, require my teachers to use it for their plans.

Overall: Chalk has updated my method of lesson and unit planning, making my work more accessible and flexible.

Storing, Sharing, and reusing lessons is a breeze.

Pros: Once I store a lesson here, it is there for future years, can be edited, and reused. Furthermore, as teachers on one team, we can enter our lessons here and share them, so that they are visible and can be used by all. This especially helps if you need to give a teacher access that works with small group pullouts, etc.

Cons: Within our district, there were several screens, and we would either forget to save before moving forward, or the information wouldn't take. We never could figure out why. This did make the entry feel cumbersome. Perhaps a one-screen versus tab option would be great, and instant saving every minute or so would be helpful to teachers.

Once set-up, the lesson plans are easy to use!

Pros: I have only used the Lesson Planning software from Chalk.com, and I find it very beneficial and easy to use. The initial set-up took some time, but that is expected, as I entered my class times, quarters, etc. I use it daily, with the plans up on my computer, and the printed off version in my plan book. It is easy to customize and change. You can can easily make units, and upload other lessons and pictures to each plan. It makes lesson planning a lot easier! Next year, as I will be teaching the same grade-level, I should be able to transfer over a lot of lessons. :)

Cons: As I said, the initial set-up is time consuming, but the steps are easy-to-follow. Customer Service will aid you when you have difficulties.

Overall: It is easy-to-use, and makes lesson-planning much simpler!

I love using Chalk.com. I use it to do my planning. It is linked to the Canadian curriculum.

Pros: I love that it is linked to the Ontario Curriculum. I use it to plan and keep track of which expectations I have covered.

Cons: I found it hard to get started. This year I am teaching SERR, found it a bit tricky to track the various levels I teach.

Pros: I love the fact that the platform provides for the ability to store, modify, and reuse lessons year to year.

Cons: The collaboration piece isnt as intuitive at first as we'd hoped. It took some sitting down as a team to work through it. Now that we have its working well.

Pros: I love that I can make a scope and sequence for all 3-5 of my classes and have them lined up in one place everyday. It makes planning and organizing a million times easier.

Cons: The only thing I dont like about it is the initial set-up of my classes. Once you figure it out, it is very easy.

Overall: I find myself being more organized and having a better picture of how my lessons work for my students. Since all of my classes are displayed at once, I can see if my lessons conflict with each other or if I'm making a day for myself too busy and I can easily adjust my plans.

Pros: I am a very organized person. Anything that helps me to see what I need to do in an appealing visual way is worthwhile in my book. I like to see things quickly and clearly. Another thing I love about this product is that I can color code my classes. I like to be able to look for a color instead of a title. It makes quick set up between class periods even quicker.

Cons: There really isn't anything I dislike about this software. It is easy to use, and I haven't had any trouble with it.

Pros: I love that I can access it anywhere and plan my lessons, manage my day and make sure my lessons are aligned with that I need to be teaching.
