Lori S.
It helps to focus subjects so there is not too much information. It helps to organize and quantify what you have taught and what you need more work on. Putting together a lesson is an easy task. However, putting together hundreds can be daunting. This is probably the best aspect of Lesson Planet, my students don't get bored!
