Sakai 12 - Lessons Tip: Define the scope and purpose of each page.


Tip: Define the scope and purpose of each page.

Typically, the purpose of a Lessons should be to either (a) introduce a set of units or lessons or (b) directly present a lesson with instructional content, activities, and assessments that serve a discrete learning objective.

The following example depicts a "unit" page whose purpose is to broadly orient students to a set of lessons (together comprising a unit of instruction) and to provide links to those lessons. At the bottom of this example unit page is also an interactive checklist that summarizes key tasks in this unit of instruction for students to complete.

The "unit" page links to "lesson" pages. An example "lesson" page is depicted below.

The purpose of this "lesson" page is to directly present instructional material and an activity that serves a particular learning outcome stated under the "Learning Outcome" heading near the top of the page. This example "lesson" page also includes a link to another Lessons subpage in the section labeled "Learn More". This subpage link is intended as an optional "sub-lesson" that builds upon and aligns with the same learning outcome.
