A classroom teacher may not be required to include any of the following in his or her lesson plans:
- Teach and re-teach strategies

- Listing content standards
- Any other similar items which are not required to serve as a guide to the teacher or substitute for daily instruction
Any of the items that are prohibited as requirements above can only be offered as suggestions.
