The process of planning forces you to reflect on what you want to accomplish in each unit and how best to do so.
Planning helps you control how class time is used and, as a result of reflection, use that time as productively as possible.

It is required to know what students have achieved and what they have failed to achieve. Evaluation should be mainly self evaluation.
