GRADE LEVEL 2 | MODULE 3 | LESSON 4
Sample Annotated PhD Science Lesson
For students to build enduring knowledge, learning conditions must be right for them to focus on what they’re learning over how they’re supposed to be learning. To that end, lesson design can be a critical support for students as they acquire new knowledge. With well-structured lessons that take into consideration research findings from cognitive science and the learning sciences, students will learn new content, apply prior knowledge in new contexts, and be well-positioned to grow their knowledge every day.
Through this annotated lesson, you will see
- how the same lesson structure of Launch, Learn, Land carries through all Great Minds’ curricula,
- how the lesson structure incorporates cognitive science research and learning sciences research, and
- how lessons revisit content and routines to help students build enduring knowledge.
