For teachers, writing out lesson plans can be one of the many tasks that keep them at their desks long after students have gone home for the day. Arkansan Tyler Tarver has worked as both a teacher and a principal and now provides resources for teachers through the Tarver Academy. Here, he offers insight on how teachers can use ChatGPT to save some time in creating those lesson plans, particularly when creating them at the last minute for a substitute who’s covering their class. The platform is far from perfect, but, Tarver says, offers a great starting point and is sophisticated in its abilities.
