Lesson planning is considered a critical but complex task to attain effective instruction. The traditional paper-based approach was found to be cumbersome and consequently detrimental in the willingness and effectiveness of teachers' lesson planning. A Web-based lesson planning system combining instructional planning and calendaring functions to support Missouri's education reforms was in the process of development and testing. Early usability tests proved the system to be positive in helping Missouri teachers plan their instruction. Some design issues were identified.
