a. All teachers need to find time to make out their lesson plan, even though it’s not what everyone wants to do, but they could have a meeting after school is out. They need to spilt the work equally between themselves. In some way they always need to communicate with one another. They need to decide which teacher is doing what and how they are grouping the students if they spilt them up.
