Preparation Checklist
What Should I Do to Get Ready for a Module?
Here are some of the checklist items that ETE teachers have been using when they prepare to use a module:

1. Become familiar with the module you plan to use.

  • browse the Module Notes for content and organization
  • imagine how students might search for information
  • check out the Teacher to Teacher pages for some ideas
  • 2. Consider what kind of final report formats you may want.

  • written
  • electronic
  • performed
  • debated
  • 3. Map out the calendar (time line) for the project.

  • module-only time line
  • module + other curricula
  • hard start + extended time
  • independent study
