  9. 9. [Student Page]Teacher Page Introduction (Teacher) Begin with something that describes the origin of the lesson. For example: This Title lesson was developed as part of the San Diego Unified School Districts Triton Project, a federally funded Technology Innovation Challenge Grant. Introduction Learners In this second paragraph of the introduction, describe briefly what the lesson is about. Remember, the audience for this document is other teachers, not students. Standards Process Resources EvaluationTeacher Script Conclusion Credits
  10. 10. [Student Page]Teacher Page Learners (Teacher) Describe the grade level and course that the lesson is designed to cover. For Title example: "This lesson is anchored in seventh grade language arts and involves social studies and math to a lesser extent." If the lesson can easily be extended to Introduction additional grades and subjects, mention that briefly here as well. Learners Describe what the learners will need to know prior to beginning this lesson. Limit Standards this description to the most critical skills that could not be picked up on the fly as the lesson is given. Process Resources EvaluationTeacher Script Conclusion Credits
  11. 11. [Student Page]Teacher Page Curriculum Standards (Teacher) Title Introduction Learners Mathematical Practices 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Standards 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. Process 5.Model with mathematics. 6.Use appropriate tools strategically. Resources 7.Attend to precision. Evaluation 7. Look for and make use of structure. 9.Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.Teacher Script Statistics and Probability Conclusion •Use random sampling to draw inferences about a population •Draw informal comparative inferences about two populations •Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models Credits
  12. 12. [Student Page]Teacher Page The Process (Teacher) You can paste in the process description given to students in the “student” Title process slide and then interleave the additional details that a teacher might need. Introduction Describe briefly how the lesson is organized. Does it involve more than one class? Learners Is it all taught in one period per day, or is it part of several periods? How many days or weeks will it take? Is it single disciplinary, interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary or Standards what? Process If students are divided into groups, provide guidelines on how you might do that. If there are misconceptions or stumbling blocks that you anticipate, describe them Resources here and suggest ways to get around them. Evaluation What skills does a teacher need in order to pull this lesson off? Is it easy enough for a novice teacher? Does it require some experience with directing debates or roleTeacher Script plays, for example? Conclusion If youre designing for a one-computer classroom or for pre-readers and are creating a facilitated WebQuest in which the teacher or an aide controls the computer and guides discussion, you can link from here to the Teacher Script page which would contain a printable script for the facilitator to follow. Variations If you can think of ways to vary the way the lesson might be carried out in different situations (lab vs. in-class, for example), describe them here. Credits
  13. 13. [Student Page]Teacher Page Resources (Teacher) Describe whats needed to implement this lesson. Some of the possibilities: Title •Class sets of books Introduction •E-mail accounts for all students Learners •Specific software (how many copies?) •Specific hardware (what kind? How many?) Standards •Specific reference material in the classroom or school library •Video or audio materials Process If the lesson makes extensive use of specific websites, it would be appropriate to Resources list, describe and link them here. Evaluation Describe also the human resources needed. how many teachers are needed to implement the lesson. Is one enough? Is there a role for aides or parents in theTeacher Script room? Do you need to coordinate with a teacher at another school? With a partner in industry or a museum or other entity? Is a field trip designed in as part of the Conclusion lesson? Credits
  14. 14. [Student Page]Teacher Page Evaluation (Teacher) How will you know that this lesson was successful? Describe what student products Title or performances youll be looking at and how theyll be evaluated. This, of course, should be tightly related to the standards and objectives you cited above. Introduction Learners You may want to just copy and paste the evaluation section of the student page ( Evaluation) into this space and add any clarifications needed for another teacher to Standards make use of this lesson.

  15. 15. [Student Page]Teacher Page Teacher Script (Teacher) The WebQuest model is best suited for learners who can navigate the Web on their Title own and can read the kinds of material commonly found on the Web. We can stretch the format to reach primary-aged learners, developmental English Language Introduction Learners and special populations by creating a facilitated WebQuest, one that Learners requires an adult or older peer to drive things. Standards Use this page to create a script for that facilitator. The facilitator would print this page out and use it to guide their progress through the WebQuest. Process This page will include step by step directions to the facilitator, including: Resources •What to say at each point in the process Evaluation •What to click on •What questions and misconceptions to anticipateTeacher Script •How long to take at each point •When to direct learners to work away from the computer Conclusion To help the facilitator, you might want to include screen dumps of particular screens embedded with the directions of what to do at that point. This page is linked to the Process segment off of the Teacher Page Credits
