Planning Period

Planning Period is an AI-powered lesson planning platform created by DFW ‘14 alum, Merlin Valdez, rooted in the feedback and experience of corps members, alumni school leaders, and partner school administrators in the TFA network.

Planning Period’s mission is to make rigorous, culturally responsive teaching accessible to all teachers.

Through our new partnership program, Planning Period is free for all TFA Corps Members and Alumni, helping all members of our network develop individualized and community contextualized lesson plans and resources for their students, while employing a participatory action research framework to gather and implement feedback from all TFA users to further develop tools and features that will be useful for teachers writ-large.
