So, here’s the secret… it’s um, science.
(And a bit of magic, but mostly science.)

The 5 Minute Lesson Plan supports cognitive thinking and structures your thought process.

Put short, it breaks down your super-complex teacher-thoughts into bitesize, digestible chunks.

Arranging your thoughts into an order that makes sense — it combines everything into a beautiful visual, so you can see your lesson as a whole.
