In Montessori Compass, you have "Planned Lessons" and "Unplanned Lessons". You can record unplanned lessons at any time via the Grid or the Lessons page. However, if you wish to plan a lesson for a specific date - you will want to utilize the lesson planning feature.
You will find "Plan this Lesson" links in a variety of places throughout the Classroom Management features, including all record keeping pages and anywhere you can view the Scope & Sequence.
When you click the "Plan this Lesson" link, the system will open up a new window/tab. This is done so it does not disrupt your workflow. When you save the planned lessons, the window closes and you will return to where you started.
