Lesson Planning

I began my eighth grade at Greenview, a one room school that had its beginning shortly after the close of the American Civil War, about 1870. There were nine of us students spanning six grades – third through eighth. Each class had its individual lecture time while the others worked on assignments.

The teacher’s name was Mrs. Hines. She was probably somewhere in her early thirties, a farmer’s wife, and she drove a stake bed truck to school.

Today’s teachers seem to expend a great deal of time and effort with lesson planning for the one grade they teach. I’m wondering how Mrs. Hines coped with so many lesson plans for six different grades?
